my daughter has been selected to participate in a trip through a program called People to People Student Ambassador Program. In 1956, President Eisenhower proposed a peaceful solution for a war-ravaged world. That solution? Give everyday citizens of different countries the opportunity to meet and get to know each other, and the result will be understanding, friendship, and lasting peace.This program picks a small group of students to travel to other countries and learn their history and culture. The trip also has the potential to earn a college credit. My daughter will get to explore Switzerland, France , Austria and Italy. We are selling candy bars , making scarves putting together spaghetti dinners...but given the tough economic times we are far off from our goal.
