What is the Youth Ambassador Exchange Program and Schedule?

 

Cincinnati high school sophomores and juniors apply to be selected to serve as a Youth Ambassador to one of Cincinnati's eight Sister Cities. Upon selection the Youth Ambassadors will participate in Academy Sessions where they not only learn how to interact in their host country and what they can expect, but also how to best represent Cincinnati, the state of Ohio , and the United States abroad. Prior to the exchange, Youth Ambassadors will also participate in fundraising events.

 

Each Youth Ambassador will depart usually in the summer to spend approximately three weeks in the Sister City they have chosen. They will live with a host family and an international counterpart where they will be fully immersed in the culture of the Sister City. While abroad, Youth Ambassadors can expect an eye-opening experience learning all about the Sister City, their international counterpart, and themselves.

 

Shortly after the Youth Ambassadors return to Cincinnati, their international counterparts from their host city will then travel to Cincinnati  to spend approximately three weeks living with the Youth Ambassador. While the international counterparts are visiting, both the Cincinnati and the international Youth Ambassadors will engage in trips and activities to give the international students the best representation of Cincinnati culture.

 

Following the program are a series of alumni events as well as promotion and marketing for the next year's Youth Ambassadors. By being a part of the Youth Ambassador Exchange Program students become part of global community, learn about different cultures, make great friends from around the world, and participate in a life-changing experience!
