Teenagers ages 13-15 are invited to participate in the second “Heritage Latvia” English-language tour sponsored by the American Latvian Association. The trip is scheduled July 12-27.
The tour is designed to introduce youth to the homeland of their ancestors. It will concentrate on what is “unique about Latvia, including its history, culture, environment and geography,” the ALA said in announcing the tour.
The trip will begin and end in Rīga, and will include visits to a number of landmarks and cities around the country. Youth also will visit two schools in Latvia.
The first “Heritage Latvia” tour was in July 2006.
