IVLP “Youth Leadership” exchange project participants travelled to Cleveland, Ohio, the final stop of their program. At John Marshal School of Civic and Business Leadership they learned about how to encourage youth to start-up their own businesses. The participants were excited to take part as judges for “Talking Bees” speech and debate competition among students at Broadway Heights High School.
The group was also invited to the Cleveland City Council and greeted by youngest Council member, Councilman Kerry McCormack. They saw first-hand how local government operates in the U.S., as well as learned more about current local issues being addressed by city government.
