Russian Exchange Program Incorporates Service
Russian Exchange Program Incorporates Service

Jr. Bills on the recent Russian summer exchange program did more than learn the language and explore cultural sites of interest.

For the four consecutive year, they undertook a daylong service project at St. John the Baptist Parish in Pushkin (a suburb of St. Petersburg), helping with various maintenance projects around the parish grounds. They also made a donation to the parish in SLUH's name.

Their service project was part of the Russian summer exchange program, an academic program that counts as course credit. Typically about ten juniors/rising seniors stay with host families from Gimnaziya #209, go to school each day and get three 45-minutes classes, then visit a museum or place of cultural significance.
