MENTORING FOR YOUNG WOMEN INTERNATIONAL EXCHANGE PROGRAM WITH SI ERLANGEN, GERMANY
In 2016, Soroptimist International of Riverside and our Friendship Link, Soroptimist International of Erlangen, Germany, developed an exchange program to give young women from both cities the opportunity to have new experiences by staying in the respective partner city. The young women stay in the homes of Soroptimist members for two weeks interacting with the people in the area and visiting places of interest. The goal of this annual exchange is to help advance personal and professional development of young women from both countries.
Since the program's inception, the cities of Riverside, California, and Erlangen, Germany, have alternated choosing a candidate. In 2020, the selected U.S. candidate will stay in Erlangen, Germany, for two weeks.
