If you are a high school sophomore or junior and are interested in traveling to another country, apply for the 2012 Phoenix Sister Cities Youth Ambassador Exchange Program by 5 p.m. Dec. 21.
The Youth Ambassador Exchange Program is open to Phoenix residents and offers students the opportunity to visit one of Phoenix’s nine sister cities next summer, to learn more about the city and its culture through a three-week, home-hosted experience. Phoenix students reciprocate and house their host brother or sister when they visit Phoenix during the same summer.
Youth Ambassadors will be selected based on maturity, flexibility, self-confidence, leadership and communication skills. International Youth Ambassadors will represent the U.S. and the city of Phoenix and will have the opportunity to experience the culture of their destination city in ways otherwise not available to the typical visitor.
Phoenix Sister Cities pays approximately half of the travel expenses between Phoenix and the selected sister city, while the remaining half is the responsibility of the students and their families. Financial assistance is available for qualified students.
