Located in northern South America, Venezuela has a rich culture and long history. Despite its abundant oil reserves, Venezuela is in crisis. Many factors have precipitated a massive migration of nearly five million of its 30 million residents. In this Destination Program, the VCAC shares Venezuela's culture surrounding Venezuela's crises and the United States.
