Embassy Hosts Annual Summer Work and Travel Barbecue

U.S. Embassy Bratislava hosted its 7th annual Summer Work and Travel (SWT) Barbeque on May 24. The SWT program combines the opportunity for Slovak students to travel around the United States over the summer with the chance to work and earn money. Recently nearly 3,000 students from Slovakia have participated in this program each year. Approximately 50 SWT applicants attended the event on Wednesday, as well as representatives from SWT partner agencies. This annual event allows the Embassy to connect with Slovak youth before they leave to spend the summer in the United States. A SWT photo exhibit showcased the experiences of previous program participants and stimulated interest in next year’s SWT Photo Contest. Watch the Embassy’s video about the event to learn more!
