Japan Programs Ambassador Application

About the Program

Japan Programs Ambassadors are University of Washington student volunteers who receive training and experience in leadership, planning, teamwork, and citizen diplomacy. Ambassadors are an integral part of the Tokyo Tech and Ehime University Programs and act as cultural liaisons, peer mentors, friends and leaders during the international participants’ time in Seattle. As a Japan Programs 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.

Ambassadors will have the opportunity to meet and spend time with all 14 Tokyo Tech students and 10 Ehime University students, but will be matched one to one or two to one with a specific participant whom they will support throughout the program.
