Access Program Extends to 4 New Regions in Moldova

October, 1 2015

Access Microscholarship Program Moldova is an excellent opportunity for Moldovan youth from disadvantaged backgrounds to learn the English language, study about a new culture, develop their social skills, and become active citizens. In October 2015, the Program was extended to 4 new regions, and namely Soroca, Anenii Noi, Taraclia and Vulcanesti, where 80 teenagers were selected to benefit from this scholarship. The selection process was very intense and quite difficult, given that many youth showed their interest in the program, and competed to become part of it. But, after going through the completion of the Access application form and an interview, the most motivated, energetic, active and determined teenagers were selected.

In order to welcome the newly nominated participants, as well as the teaching staff, APAO Kate Bartlett paid each of the 4 sites a visit, handing each student a welcoming letter and a "Proud to be an Access student" wrist band. The representative of the U.S. Embassy Chisinau congratulated the new participants for being selected, and wished them an amazing journey, and to stay active and enjoy the exciting 2-year Access experience.
We are happy to welcome all the new Access-ers to the team, and are thrilled to see the Access family growing!
