NEW YORK, May 8, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- A group of 18 New York City public high school students will travel to Bosnia and Herzegovina to explore media and society in collaboration with Bosnian peers, June 26--July 19. The students participate in Global Kids (www.globalkids.org), an award-winning, non-profit educational organization that promotes global learning and youth development.
Amidst the cultural heritage of the capital Sarajevo, the group will meet local leaders, activists and artists. They will also see the progress that has been made in rebuilding the divided city of Mostar. The bulk of time will be spent in Sanski Most, living with families and engaging in dialogue and community projects alongside Bosnian peers.
