We send you greetings
from the Global Voice Project. Global Voice is part of the Community
Chest, Inc., a private, non-profit
organization in Virginia City, Nevada. The purpose of the Global
Voice Project is to raise personal and political awareness among
Northern Nevada to help us take action on issues we believe are important
in our local and global communities. Our youth have completed an
international exchange with youth from Northern Ireland and are continuing
what is happening globally instead of just in our homeland.
In January, 2006 Global Voice hosted its second
international youth exchange. A group of ten Storey County youth and college
students traveled to Escuinapa, Mexico
for two weeks to work in a low-income middle school. Escuinapa is the home
of a former exchange student who attended Virginia City High School in 2004,
her parents, both educators at the school, invited us to visit their community
and assist them by bringing enrichment programs in music and sports and by
them create a library service for students.
We are excited about representing our local communities,
our state, and our nation—representing
you and your organization abroad. Won’t you consider supporting our group?
Any donations that you or your business can contribute to our international
youth exchange network will be greatly appreciated. On behalf of the Global
thank you very much for your continued support of our program.
