Haiti - USA : 20 young Haitians participate in the program «Youth Ambassadors»
The Department of State's Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs will welcome the first-ever group of Youth Ambassadors from Haiti to the United States on August 7. For three weeks, 20 Haitian high school students will travel to New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Washington, D.C. where they will meet with their U.S. peers, live with host families, and take part in activities focused around civic education, community service, and youth leadership development.

The youth participants are 15 to 18 year-olds who have demonstrated outstanding leadership potential. Although they hail from families of limited economic means, each has demonstrated exceptional commitment to public service and an interest in improving their local communities. The students will be accompanied by two adult educators.

The Youth Ambassadors Program brings together high school students and adult mentors from 25 countries across the Americas to promote mutual understanding, increase leadership skills, and prepare youth to make a difference in their communities. More than 400 Youth Ambassadors participate in the program each year.
