Vincentian youth are being given an opportunity to participate in the United States Youth Ambassadors Programme.
The U.S. Embassy has announced that the 2020 application process is now open.
The program brings together motivated secondary school students between 15 and 18 years of age and adult mentors committed to public service and improving community.
The selected students will engage in workshops, community service activities, team building exercises, meetings with community leaders, and home stays with American families.
Upon their return home, the students apply what they have learned to implement projects that serve needs in their communities. It is mandatory for the students to have at least one year of high school remaining. The adult mentors will assume the responsibility of accompanying and guiding the youth through their experience and motivate them to be active participants before, during and after the exchange.
Information on the Youth Ambassadors Program and instructions on how to apply as a student or a mentor, can be accessed at the U.S. Embassy’s website at www.bb.usembassy.gov.
