At the Government House, Governor Raúl Jalil received the body of delegates and volunteers from the YFU, a non-governmental organization that aims to promote cultural exchange between young people from different countries around the world who are pursuing secondary level studies.

Youth For Understanding (YFU) is a nonprofit educational organization dedicated to promoting peace among the peoples of the world and international understanding through its cultural exchange programs. It has a student exchange program that has a presence in more than sixty countries.

At the meeting, the Governor met with the Catamarca delegates of the YFU NGO, Celeste Arias and Pablo Blamey, as well as Julia Horn, an intern from Germany, who is enjoying and getting to know the Catamarca lands these days. There, they shared different experiences and work methodologies.

On the occasion, the provincial leader made the commitment to provide them with a stand at the next edition of the National and International Poncho Festival, to be held during the month of July, so that they can disseminate their exchange proposals so that more young people from Catamarca have the opportunity to live this experience.

On the occasion and after describing the dialogue with the provincial leader as “very positive,” the Catamarca delegate Celeste Arias explained that the organization she works for represents “a cultural exchange NGO that promotes an exchange among secondary school children of different countries”. And she added: “The idea is to be able to put a stand at the Poncho Festival so that the scholarship system that exists for the exchange of boys can be promoted. Last year we were there and we were able to get a couple of families interested in becoming hosts and also numerous kids who wanted to travel and live this experience.”

Arias commented that there are currently scholarships to travel, for example, to Thailand with fifty percent coverage and “registrations are made until June.”
