Student Exchange Program

When offered, EFASCE di Pordenone extends an invitation for Student members of EFASCE di Philadelphia, ages 15-18, to participate in an exchange visit to Friuli for two to three weeks during the summer.  Students are housed at Euro Hotel in Maniago, and generally attend class each morning in Maniago followed by afternoon excursions to various attractions and destinations within the region, including: Trieste, Pordenone, Valvasone, Barcis, and Venezia.  This program offers students an incredible opportunity to learn about the land of their ancestors, first hand, and to meet and interact with students of other EFASCE organizations from the United States and Canada.  The first delegation of students from Philadelphia occurred July 2009.

Related to the Student Exchange is the Riscorprire Friuli (Rediscover Friuli) program.  This program is not offered every year, and is a new program designed to ‘re-discover’ Friuli with a youth under 18 years of age, accompanied by a chapperone, typically someone who also has relations with our heritage and the Friuli region.

Please contact Andrea Justice or Madalena Lorenzon for additional details and to submit applications.  E-mail for more information.
