Youth Ambassadors Program with the Caribbean

In August 2015, FIUTS hosted a group of 12 high school youth and two adult mentors through the Youth Ambassadors Program with the Caribbean. Participants came from Antigua and Barbuda, Barbados, Bahamas, Guyana, Jamaica, St. Lucia, Suriname, and Trinidad. Another group will be joining us in August 2016.

During this program, students and adults participate in workshops, site visits, and volunteer service activities focused on the themes 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. They 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.
