Departing 2017 “Youth Ambassadors”

Girls and boys, ranging in age from 15 to 18, hailing from diverse areas of  the country, have just left Haiti to participate in the Youth Ambassador Program. Their three week long program in the United States is organized by Global Potential under the auspices  of the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs.

During this program, Haitians and Americans will have the opportunity to gain critical knowledge,  as well as skills and competences that will enable them to interact positively and powerfully with our global community. Importantly, the program will  reinforce leadership capacity.  International exchanges can foster deep personal growth, the development of individual and group leadership skills and a lifelong commitment to civic engagement and global citizenship.

The Office of Public Diplomacy wishes them good luck on their new adventure!
