We create opportunities for education and professional development of young, talented and ambitious Czechs and Slovaks. We want their talents to blossom and with them the standing of the Czech and Slovak Republics.
Together with the Center for Talented Youth, Johns Hopkins University, we intend to open CTY Central Europe at Masaryk University in Brno in 2013. Over the last two years, we have spent $500,000 in a pilot project to create this unique opportunity. Already, over 500 students tasted CTY benefits. We trust the Czech government will help us with the startup cost. Many more would have the same opportunity with CTY CE.
We have been supporting young Czech and Slovak leaders active in healthcare, education, and environmental science through our Young Leaders Program. Over the last few years, we have issued twelve grants averaging about $15,000 per participant.
Please join us. We strive for a partnership among Americans, Czechs and Slovaks and education makes our partnership stronger. We build on a proud tradition of the American Fund for Czechoslovak Refugees, established in 1948 by Czech and Slovak Americans to resettle refugees from communism in the United States. We are a legally registered charitable institution in the United States as defined by IRS 501(c) 3 regulations.
Please join our fight for excellence in education by investing in talent development. Donate to our cause.
