International Youth Exchange – 21st July 3rd August 2010

This year’s RCT Services for Young People’s International Cultural Youth Exchange will be taking place in Wresznia, Poland.

10 young people, aged between 16 and 20, from across Rhondda Cynon Taf will be representing Wales, and travelling with 2 of our Youth Leaders to spend 2 weeks with young people from France, Germany and of course Poland.
