Sister City Association launches 30th annual youth exchange program

Info sessions start Nov. 9; applications due March 15

The Pleasanton-Tulancingo Sister City Association is looking for 10th- and 11th-graders interested in participating in its 30th annual youth exchange program with Tulancingo, Mexico.

Applicants from any local high school can apply, and the exchange program is reciprocal so families who send a child to Mexico are expected to host a student from Tulancingo, organizers said.

Mexican students visit Pleasanton from June 12 to July 3, and local students head to Tulancingo July 3-24. Two years of Spanish education or equivalent Spanish ability is required. Application deadline is March 15.

Interested applicants can attend informational meetings, set for 7-8 p.m. Nov. 9, Dec. 7, Jan. 18 and Feb. 16 at the Pleasanton Chamber of Commerce office, 777 Peters Ave. To RSVP for info sessions or to learn more about the program, email exchange@ptsca.org.
