WAUSAU, Wis. (WSAU) – Six Ukrainians hope to use their visit to Wausau this week to understand how to build successful child protection, foster care and adoption organizations in their country.

Northcentral Technical College is hosting the delegation through the Open World Leadership Center at the Library of Congress.

Delegates are living with host families during their stay – a move that enables them to experience American culture more intimately.

The delegates will meet with the United Way, the Women’s Community and the Boys and Girls Club among other organizations.

The visit was already overwhelming by the second day for some delegates. One wished his head was like a computer memory card so he could store all of the information he had learned.

Two delegates are working for the United Nations development program. They say a presentation Monday helped them understand how they could better give rural youth in their country access to technology that will help them get a job.

The delegation returns to their country on Sunday.
