The Youth Ambassador Program brings together high school students from our sister city to promote international friendships through mutual respect, understanding and cooperation, increase leadership skills, and prepare youth to make a difference in their community.

2014-2015 Youth Ambassadors

Youth Ambassadors Selected for the 2014 Exchange Program

Congratulations to our 2014 Youth Ambassadors! In all we received fourteen applications from very outstanding Mesa high school students. We were able to select eight students to travel abroad this summer representing Mesa, Arizona.

Each student will spend three weeks with a host family, each of which has a high school aged student in their household.  Our Ambassadors will become a member of their assigned household and will be introduced to their local culture and civic backgrounds. They will eat their traditional foods and speak the local language.

At the end of three weeks our ambassadors will return to Mesa.  One week later the students from their “adopted Sister Cities family” will arrive in Mesa and live with our families here for three weeks.

We are pleased to introduce this year’s Youth Ambassadors and the cities that they will be traveling to.
