Come November, a group of eight Lithuanians will visit Issaquah to get a taste of the Pacific Northwest. Participants in the Lithuanian Youth Leaders program will go to high school and visit organizations, including Nordstrom, Microsoft, Boeing, Pike Place Market and the University of Washington.

The Lithuanian students will also celebrate Thanksgiving with their host families.

The program is coordinated by Across Cultures, supported by the Kiwanis Club of Issaquah.

To host a student from Nov. 15-30, contact Christina Bruning with Across Cultures at or 206-915-4391 before Oct. 22.

The program is endorsed by the U.S. ambassador to Lithuania and is funded in part by the Kazickas Family Foundation, Microsoft, Lithuania and the U.S. State Department.
