Shorefront Y hosts the United States Military Academy at West Point

10:00AM - 12:00PM  


The Shorefront YM-YWHA of Brighton-Manhattan Beach will be hosting for its 12th year - the Russian Language and Cultural Exchange with the United States Military Academy at West Point on April 23, 2019, from 10:00 a.m. - 11:30 a.m. As one of the most interesting & unique events at the Shorefront Y , the organization will be pairing native Russian-speaking community members, WWII veterans from the Former Soviet Union, and students of the Shorefront Y's English as a Second Language Program, with West Point cadets who are studying Russian as part of their academic course of study. 


This opportunity highlights connections to the Russian speaking community and also allows the Shorefront Y's ESL students a chance to give back by sharing their knowledge of the Russian language and culture with future U.S. Army officers-in-training.
