Professional Exchanges Program

“I find it so rewarding in our global life experiences to make human connections that stay with you. In some ways our is smaller but real communication doesn’t come as a result of technology, it’s the face-to-face, handshake squeeze that leaves an imprint. That’s why the hard work that you do is tremendously important. Our country would have a broader world view/understanding if our neighbors if individuals could make personal contact.”

– Rebecca S. Ebaugh, Baltimore City Department of Recreation and Parks
