Chisinau – U.S. Ambassador Pettit joined in the celebration of the graduation of 70 students of the English Access Microscholarship Program from Staseni, Ialoveni, and Orhei.
The Access program develops English language skills and capabilities among economically-disadvantaged youth, while also introducing them to American culture and society through after-school classes and enhancement activities. Access students often gain enough English to participate in future U.S. exchange and study programs.
In his remarks to the graduating students, Ambassador Pettit challenged them to make use of their new skills.
