The 12 high school youth and two adult participants in the Youth Ambassadors Program join in workshops, site visits, and volunteer service activities focused on the theme of Youth and Social Transformation. Participants gain skills and experiences intended to prepare them to plan and implement community service projects once they return to their home countries. Participants come from Chile and Argentina, stay with host families during their time in Seattle, and have opportunities to meet and connect with local youth.
FIUTS produces the Seattle portion of this Youth Ambassadors Program through a contract with World Learning, and the program is fully funded by the U.S. Department of State Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs.
