Hi! I am a volunteer for an exchange student program called Center for Cultural Interchange. I place exchange students. I have a student from the Ukraine to be placed in a host family around Chicago, IL. Last year a PCV family hosted a girl from the Ukraine and enjoyed their experience. They suggested I place a note here so other PCVs can folow suit. The students speak English, are part of a scholarship program called FLEX, funded by the American government. Let me know if you want more information about hosting. Please call me at 630 784-4825.

Hello All,

I'm a PCV in Romania. I"m looking to go to Ukraine in the coming weeks and speak with members of NGO's who have been part of the increasingly successful movement towards strong democracy in Ukraine. I work with students and Roma (gypsy) population and in both cases mobilizing people is a huge challenge so I want to leanr from those who have succeeded. Anyone who could put me in touch with Ukrainian orgs or PCVs in Ukraine right now would be of a great help to me. Thanks! (email:
