The Youth Ambassadors Program with Canada is a three week exchange designed for Canadians to go to the U.S.A. Conducted in the English language, the program brings together high school students and adult mentors from Canada to promote mutual understanding, increase leadership skills, and prepare youth to make a difference in their communities. Program themes include: civic education, community service, youth leadership development and entrepreneurship.
The Center for the Study of Canada at SUNY Plattsburgh is proud to be organizing the Youth Ambassadors Program with Canada thanks to the support of the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, United States Department of State, the United States Embassy Ottawa and Fulbright Canada.
The Youth Ambassadors Program with Canada is an intensive program with three segments:
The program sponsors seek energetic applicants who are ready to develop their skills in order to be effective leaders in their schools and communities. Youth applicants must be between 15 and 18 years old at the start of the actual program on July 8, 2013.
