Come learn more about this exciting leadership opportunity for current University of Washington undergraduate and graduate students!
SUSI Ambassadors are University of Washington students who volunteer for the FIUTS SUSI program and receive training and experience in leadership, planning, teamwork, and citizen diplomacy. Ambassadors are an integral part of the SUSI program and act as cultural liaisons, peer mentors, friends and leaders during the international participants’ time in Seattle. As a SUSI Ambassador you can learn new skills, have fun, make friends, build your resume, and support FIUTS’ mission to inspire cross-cultural friendship and understanding on campus and in our community.
ABOUT THE PROGRAM: From January 7 to February 11, 2017 FIUTS is hosting the Study of the U.S. Institutes for Student Leaders on Civic Engagement (SUSI) in Seattle. This exchange program, sponsored by the U.S. Department of State, brings 20 undergraduate students between the ages of 19 and 25 from 5 countries in Southern Africa to the United States. While here, the students study leadership, civic engagement, and project-planning and participate in volunteer and service activities, leadership workshops, and cultural excursions.
