The Collective Public Policy Voice of the Exchange Community

What do a water park in Wildwood, New Jersey and a summer camp in Wilmot, New Hampshire have in common? They both engage with and benefit from educational and cultural exchange programs!

On April 17, the Alliance hosted a webinar for the Summer Work Travel and Camp Counselor network focused on actionable strategies to enhance awareness and understanding of the benefits of these programs in local communities nationwide.

We are grateful to all those who were able to join the webinar. A recording of the conversation can be accessed here.
