Two brothers with a shared vision are bringing a new international student exchange to Sebastopol.

 

In setting up the Global Student Embassy program at Analy High School (left), Jasper Oshun says they departed from the models of other existing student exchange programs.

 

Lucas Oshun says they selected the two participating South American towns, rural Zurite, Peru and and bustling Santa Fe, Argentina (below) in part because of the contrasts between them.

Created by two brothers from Sebastopol, Lucas and Jasper Oshun, the Global Student Embassy is "building leaders by connecting the world's youth to practice social responsibility and community service." The program is intended to educate and increase community responsibility amongst teens from all three participating towns.

 On November 14th, the Sebastopol Community Cultural Center will host the Global Student Embassy's Fundraising Dinner. For tickets and information, click here.
