The program involves hosting Spanish students for a two-week period, beginning July 2 or 3, and then returning to either Donostia-San Sebastian or Villanueva de La Cañada with the students from La Cañada Flintridge. The local kids will be residing with the families of the Spanish students for two weeks between approximately July 20-Aug. 4.
Separately, La Cañada Flintridge is also looking for students to participate in the Youth Leadership Summit in Virginia Beach, Va., July 12-16. This program provides the opportunity to attend an international summit and participate with students from across the country and the world.
