Starting from this September, Teodora Boshkova (YES ’17, hosted by AYA/AIFS in Timmonsville, SC) started her YES Language School in her home town of Sveti Nikole. The YES Language school provides children from social vulnerable categories that are not able to afford to attend a private language school the opportunity to learn English through non-formal approach that Teodora learned on her participation at WYLET – Workshop for Youth Leaders in English Teaching, a one-week program in Washington, D.C. funded by the U.S. Department of State Bureau of Education and Cultural Affairs (ECA) for YES, FLEX and CBYX students.

With a donation of books and venue of a private language school in her town and with the help of the alumni network as well as the grants available to YES Alumni, Teodora will be holding English classes every Saturday until June – the end of the school year in Macedonia to 10 primary school children.  During her classes, the children also get the opportunity to broaden their horizons and learn about the U.S. culture directly from Teodora and her own personal experiences.

It takes a lot of devotion, motivation and courage to implement such a long term project and Teodora has it all! Thank you Teodora for motivating YES alumni worldwide to be active and to strive towards a better and more educated society!
