This exchange offers a three in one opportunity!
1. Your first stop will be to the Iowa 4-H Youth Conference held at Iowa State University. At this conference you will have the opportunity to engage in workshops on topics that interest you, meet youth from all over Iowa, and see first hand a University campus.
2. Next you will be junior counsellors at a 4-H overnight camp about Global Citizenship. Middle school students attend this camp and your role will be to help lead them in activities, share Albanian culture, and enjoy the experience together.
3. An integral part of this exchange trip is to visit your sister city in Iowa (Johnston or Ft. Dodge). During your last days in Iowa, you will get to discover what daily life is like in your sister city as well as understand the people and places in your sister city through the eyes of their youth.
Once you return to Kosovo, you are expected to participate in opportunities to share your learning and give back to your community.
