Student Summer Exchange in Sister City

Pleasanton high school students are invited to take part in an informational session regarding the cultural exchange opportunity offered by The Pleasanton-Tulancingo Sister City Association. Students interested in participating in the cultural exchange must have the equivalent of 2 years of Spanish by the end of the school year. Students will host a student in their homes from June 18 to July 9th and they will be hosted by a family in Tulancingo from July 9th to July 30th. The only cost involved is the airfare.

The Pleasanton/Tulancingo Sister City Association is a Pleasanton City Chartered organization and it is a non-profit. Our mission statement is to promote goodwill and friendship between the communities of Pleasanton, Ca and Tulancingo, Mexico. The exchange program has been successfully operating for over 30 years. Students come back enriched by their experiences in many ways including improved ability to speak and understand Spanish, eyes opened to another culture in a safe and supportive family environment and a growth in confidence and maturity.

Students may attend informational sessions on February 16th or March 2nd from 7 to 8PM at the Chamber of Commerce, 777 Peters Avenue. Additional information is also available on the Pleasanton Unified School District Peach Jar website as well as: www.ptsca.org. You may also call Student Exchange Director Jorge Victoria at 925-989-6882, or Sylvia Victoria at 925-462-6723.
