“My first time in Russia had more of an impact on me than I could have possibly anticipated... the thing that probably has affected me most is not Moscow, not Red Square..., but Vladimir and the things I experienced there. I felt more alive there than I have ever felt before.” (Adam Treml, ASB participant)
VLADIMIR: Help several community organizations, including the Youth Health and Education Center, Karl Liebnicht Orphanage, Russian Orthodox Church, Handicapped Children's Association “Light”, Vladimir Regional Veterans’ Home and others, while interacting with Russian university students and experiencing the delight and wonder of provincial Russia.
MUROM: Help university students at the Murom Institute (an affiliate of Vladimir State University) to improve their English language skills; prepare audio and video materials for their English language program.
