Posted on 3/27/2009

Jane Wakefield is one of four students selected to travel to Northern Ireland to serve as the city’s young ambassadors for 2009.  She will be traveling in late July to Peoria’s Sister City in the Borough of Ards and staying with a host family for two weeks.  She will also be hosting an Irish student in her home for two weeks prior to her departure.  The program has been in effect since 2003 and over twenty Peoria youth have participated in this summer exchange. The purpose is to provide an opportunity to develop and understanding of different countries, their cultures and people.
