Establishment of the U.S. Embassy Youth Council
January 30, 2015. One day full of hope to do something good for the youth in Bulgaria. Young people are not only the future, they are also present.
What is the Youth Council
The Youth Council at the US Embassy in Sofia was established on January 30, 2015 by the Ambassador of the United States in Bulgaria – Marcie B. Ries.
We, the members of the Council, are a group of young, dynamic Bulgarians who have three main objectives:
To advice the US Embassy how to better understand the problems of young people in Bulgaria and thus to assist its efforts to solve them.
To create opportunities for innovative young Bulgarian leaders to meet and exchange ideas with American, Bulgarian and international experts.
To provide concrete solutions to the problems the Youth in Bulgaria face.
