From July 4 to 8 – the Friends of the Ukrainian Village Society hosted 14 participants of the Children for Peace program in the Junior Interpreter Program at the Ukrainian Cultural Heritage Village. Children selected for the Children for Peace program have either lost a parent or have a severely injured parent as a result of the war in Ukraine.
The Junior Interpreter Program was a great success! Dressed in historic costumes, the participants worked with farm animals, cooked pyrohy and experienced what life was like for Ukrainian immigrant youth in the 1920s.
The Historic Children’s (ages 6 to 11) and Junior Interpreter (ages 12 to 16) Programs continue to August 19 – spaces are available! For information and registration click here.
