Since arriving in Salem, Oregon on March 26th for the 2010 Youth Leadership Program, eighteen students and three teachers from Bosnia and Herzegovina have been blogging about their daily activities. Throughout the program, participants will write about their classes in the Civic Education and Leadership Institute at Willamette University, their visits to local university and high school classes, their work with non-profit organizations, their trip to Washington, D.C, and much more. This blog will continue to be updated daily throughout the program until the participants return home on April 25th. Click here to visit their blog.
Hosted by IDEA, Willamette University, and the U.S. Department of State, the Bosnia and Herzegovina Youth Leadership Program is a month-long program that explores the meaning behind democratic citizenship through workshops and active participation in the local community.
