When wanderlust beckons - JuBi for stays abroad
(kus) Going to school in Australia, working and travelling in Canada or looking after children in China: living abroad for a while is the dream of many young people. At the beginning of the planning there are usually many questions: To which country should it go? Which program is the right one? Are there certain requirements that need to be met? What costs can be expected?
At the JugendBildungsmesse Frankfurt, visitors can get answers to all these and other questions about living abroad. The "JuBi" will take place on Saturday, December 3, at the Gymnasium Riedberg, Friedrich-Dessauer-Strasse 2. Over 35 exhibitors inform between 10 and 16 o'clock to different program variants as for example pupil exchange, language journeys, Freiwilligendienste, Au pair, foreign practical courses. The fair is aimed at students in grades 7 to 13, their parents and teachers. Admission is free.
"Our society benefits from young people's curiosity about the world. Their experiences abroad allow them to become self-confident and polyglot citizens of the world. ln times of advancing globalization, they acquire intercultural competence while far away. Nowadays, this can be counted among the most important soft skills internationally", says Peter Feldmann, Mayor of the City of Frankfurt and patron of the Youth Education Fair.
Weltweiser, the independent educational counselling service and organiser of the fair, will also have a stand on site and will provide individual advice on stays abroad and alternative financing options. For example, WELTBÜRGER scholarships for student exchanges, language trips, volunteer services and other programs will be advertised at the fair.
