Each year YouthBuild sends 4-5 students for a 2-week internship working and learning in the King's Gardens of Versailles. Under the direction of Antoine Jacobsohn, students gain environmental and cultural experiences while working with skilled teachers. Our annual French Fete allows YOU the opportunity to meet our students that have recently returned from their internship while enjoying a delicious meal. During the fete, guests will hear of their experiences and learn more about the program that has changed the lives of youth in our city. By attending, you will be supporting the 2018 group of YouthBuild interns that will go to France. We hope you will join us for this fantastic party.
