Teens: Phoenix Sister Cities applications due Jan. 11

Phoenix high school sophomores and juniors can apply to serve as Youth Ambassadors and travel to one of Phoenix’s 10 sister cities. Youth Ambassadors will learn how to interact in their host countries and how to best represent Phoenix, the state of Arizona and the United States abroad. Applications are due Friday, Jan. 11.

Each Youth Ambassador spends three weeks in the summer in their assigned sister city, living with a host family and an international counterpart. Then, Youth Ambassadors return to Phoenix with their international counterparts, who stay for three weeks.

The Youth Ambassador Exchange Program helps students learn about different cultures and make friends around the world. The sister cities movement was born out of President Eisenhower’s vision of an organization that creates individual bonds that promote peaceful relationships internationally.

The nonprofit Phoenix Sister Cities supports 10 sister city relationships: Calgary, Canada; Catania, Italy; Chengdu, China; Ennis, Ireland; Grenoble, France; Hermosillo, Mexico; Himeji, Japan; Prague, Czech Republic; Ramat-Gan, Israel; and Taipei, Taiwan.
