Sniffing wanderlust for young world explorers from Hesse
(kus) Packing your suitcase and setting off to get to know an unknown country and living there for a while - a big dream for many young people. There are many programs that make such experiences possible, for example student exchanges, language trips, assignments as an au pair, volunteer services, internships and much more.
But once the dreams are to be turned into reality, a lot of questions arise: How long should you go abroad and where? During or after high school? What kind of programme should it be and how can it be financed? You can get the answers at the JugendBildungsmesse JuBi on Saturday, September 2, at the Wöhlerschule, Mierendorffstraße 6. The Ausland-Info-Börse is open from 10 am to 4 pm. Admission is free.
"Our society benefits from young people's curiosity about the world. Their experiences abroad turn them into self-confident and polyglot citizens of the world. ln times of advancing globalization, they acquire intercultural competence while far away. Nowadays, this can be considered one of the most important international soft skills," says Peter Feldmann, Lord Mayor of the City of Frankfurt and patron of the fair.
At JuBi, visitors can talk personally with exhibitors and former program participants. The fair is organised by weltweiser, the independent educational advisory service and publishing house, which offers individual advice on stays abroad and alternative financing options at its information stand. Numerous WELTBÜRGER scholarships will also be announced as part of the JuBi.
The offer is aimed at students in grades 7 to 13, parents and teachers. For more information, an exhibitor list and scholarship information, visit <link http: www.weltweiser.de _blank>
