Kenai Conversation: Some foreign exchange programs resume in 2021

Apr 7, 2021

Travel was one of the first things to go last March, sending students who were on the Kenai Peninsula for foreign exchange — and their counterparts from Kenai who were abroad — packing.

But some programs are coming back in 2021. Our guests are Mitch Michaud with the Congress-Bundestag Youth Exchange program, in conjunction with Kenai Peninsula College; Eileen Bryson with the local chapter of the American Field Service; and Will Morrow with the Soldotna Rotary Club's exchange program.

We talked about the outlook for their respective programs in 2021, what it was like sending students back as the world shut down last spring and some of their own stories from hosting students.
