    An Evening with 3 Exchange Students

    Getting to Know Azerbaijan, Georgia and Russia: An Evening With Three Exchange Students

    On Tuesday evening, May 6, three exchange students will share their lives and cultures with the Warren community. Fira Gasimova (from Azerbaijan), Tamar Buachidze (from the Republic of Georgia) and Kadriya Sharafutdinova (from Russia) will have an informal discussion about their countries as well as their experiences here in the U.S. The three girls attend local high schools and are participants in the FLEX program (Future Leaders Exchange) which is administered by American Councils for International Education.

    Sponsored by the U.S. government, the Future Leaders Exchange (FLEX) Program is for secondary school students from 10 republics of the former Soviet Union (Eurasia). The program offers merit-based scholarships for students to travel to the United States to attend high school for a full academic year while living with a host family.

    Established in 1992 as the centerpiece of the Eurasian Secondary School Initiative under the FREEDOM Support Act, FLEX is funded by the U.S. Department of State. Former Senator Bill Bradley asserted that the best way to ensure long-lasting peace and understanding between the U.S. and Eurasian countries is to enable young people to learn about the U.S. and Americans firsthand.

    FLEX strives to improve mutual understanding between countries and allows young citizens of Eurasia to observe and experience the U.S. and its system of government. Since FLEX’s inception in 1993, over 23,000 student participants from Eurasia have returned to their countries imbued with a new enthusiasm and desire to help others. These students go on to share their newly acquired experiences and knowledge for the betterment of their home communities and countries.

    Please join us on Tuesday evening, May 6, from 6-8 p.m. in the Slater Room at the Warren Library.
