Deadline: Sunday, May 15th, 2011 – Youth Ambassadors
Are you a French high school junior or senior level student? Become a Youth Ambassador to the United States!
Youth Ambassadors is a program initiated by the Embassy of the United States of America in France and co-partnered with ACSE (the French National Agency for Social Cohesion and Equal Opportunity).
On site you will attend an American school and live with a host family. As a Youth Ambassador, you will represent France and participate in meetings and debates with associations and young people on themes such as cultural diversity, identity, equal opportunity, volunteer work and community service. Before your departure from France, you will participate in two obligatory training sessions, one of which is a national training session. Upon your return, in order to share your experience, you will take part in an internship at an association.
