An Introduction to the People to People Student Ambassador Program
The main goal of a People to People student ambassador is to work with many people from other countries, discuss our differences and find a way to live in peace and keep the peace. On my trip to the United British Isles, I will be representative of the United States of America. I will be accompanied by other students my age who will be my teammates.
Together we will learn and accomplish so much in such a short time. We will change the world for the better. I would love to go abroad and expand my experience of the culture, agriculture, architecture, sports, countryside and music in the British Isles. I would love to improve my education and learn that people from other countries are just the same like us.
They are just as lucky as we are. They have the same small opportunities as we do. A People to People Student Ambassador behavior should be like grown adults. I should remember my manners at all times. I should be kind, courteous and polite to everyone I meet. I should extend courtesy to others hoping to receive the same courtesy back.
The 34th United States President Dwight Eisenhower founded the Program of People to People Student Ambassadors. President Eisenhower believed that ordinary citizens of different nations, if they could connect directly, would resolve their differences and find a way to live in peace. People can make a difference where governments cannot. People can preserve and strengthen peace. This Program was launched in 1956. I found some information about the Student Ambassador to People program on the web and read some literature in the library.
