The Bi-National Center (Access Program)

We visited a Bi-National center that was hosting an Access Program. This is a great concept and collaboration between the State Department and the ICPNA. The idea is to provide students with the resources to become fluent in more than one language as a way to bridge cultural gaps and improve employment prospects for disadvantaged youth across the globe.  These students are the best of the best from their communities.  After being in school all day, most of them travel by bus for at least an hour, to participate in a 2 1/2 hour language session in English.  We helped the kids with their English classwork and spoke with them for about an hour. These are some of the next leaders of the world coming straight out of Peru!
