High school students can learn about participating in the Pleasanton/Tulancingo Sister City Association Youth Exchange Program at a meeting at 7 p.m. Tuesday at Foothill High or at an ice cream social at 7 p.m., Wednesday, March 7, in a private home.

To participate in the program, a student needs to be entering his or her sophomore, junior or senior year in the fall and must have completed a second year of Spanish by the end of this school year. Teens and their parents are invited to attend the informational sessions to learn more. The application and selection process will be explained, plus exchange students from former years will be there to answer questions.

Students who apply will be interviewed Sunday, March 18. For more information, visit the group's website at To recommend a student, call the Exchange Director, Rita Galvin, at 413-8863.
