Message from WCSCI President Bob Simmons
I am honored and excited to serve as President for 2017-2019.  Among my first 'duties', I attended the San Francisco Hungarian Flag Raising Day (above photo of me with Eva Voisin, Honorary Consul General for Hungary, San Francisco). In addition to supporting the excellent work on the YAE!! program, I hope we will be able to arrange a visit to Noceto and Siofok for the adult members of WCSCI.
Bon Voyage YAE!! Students
SAVE THE DATE - Wednesday, October 18th
The Youth Ambassadors return from their exchange trip to our sister cities (Sept. 28 - Oct. 7).  Come hear about their experience of a lifetime!  More details to come soon.
It is not too late to renew your membership!  It takes a village to keep this worthwhile organization going, so please join us. Renew your membership today!
Jack Daley Attends Youth Summit in Virginia Beach
Daley (Siofok Ambassador 2015/16) represented WCSCI at  the Youth Leadership Summit (YLS) in Virginia Beach this past July.  Annually, WCSCI selects a youth to attend the YLS offering an incredible experience to one of our past ambassadors.  All members are welcome to attend, however WCSCI offers one scholarship a year.  Look for more information in early 2018!
