Washington DC, USAÂ – Planning for the July 9-13 Youth Service program in Washington, DC, began months ago inspired by the successful model carried out in Albania last year. Initially outreach was to the diplomatic community. The embassies of Botswana, Ghana, and Timor-Leste responded. The daughter of the Botswana ambassador and the daughter of the Ghana ambassador were among the 18 participants; the others were from the Ivory Coast, Albania, and the US.
