In this virtual program WACNH will arrange a virtual meeting with Media Power Youth, a organization working to provide curricula, training, and workshops to build young people’s media literacy knowledge and critical-thinking skills through hands-on, engaging programs. Discussions will focus on strategies to create discerning consumers of media among youth.
IVLP PROGRAM UPDATE
In the past year WACNH has worked to navigate the challenges of the pandemic by working with the Office of International visitors at the State Department and Global Ties. During this time we have rapidly and successfully started implementing IVLP Virtual Exchanges. While this will never replace in-person programming it is proving to be a valuable tool for future programming.
With many recent advances in vaccines the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs of the U.S. Department of State has set a potential date of October 1st for in-person programming to resume.
Please note, the safety of US citizens as well as our international visitors is a top priority. Additional updates will be provided once more information is received.
