Funding For People to People Ambassador Program

T. Ladson started this conversation

My name is Tiffany Ladson. I am currently an 11th grade student at Brooklyn Preparatory High School. I was recently interviwed and accepted to participate as a member of the People to People Student Ambassador Program. I will be traveling to Erope in the summer of 2007. The objective of this progam is to promote international understanding while building leadership skills among youth nationaly. This experience includes meetings with government officials, interaction with other students my age, educational activities, and home stay with host families.

I am currently seeking financial sponsers to help me with tuition, and hope I can count on your support. In case you haven't heard of the People to People Student Ambassador Program, please allow me to share some history with you. President Dwight D. Eisenhower founded the organization in 1956. He belived that if people from different cultures come together in peace and friendship then eventually the countries would as well. Since its founding, the People to People Student Ambassador Program has launched many international programs, including Sister Cities, Project HOPE, and Pen Pals.

People to People Student Ambassadors are carefully interviwed and evaluated before given their acceptance and I am honored to have been selected. Personally, I am looking forward to broadering my perspective of the world and gaining a better understanding of the Western European history. Upon my return, I plan to share my experiene with schools and civic clubs in our community. This program also allows you to earn high school and college credits. I am asking you if you can assist me on to making my future a success. I Thank You in advance !!!!!!

 in response to YourAspoiledBrat...   Hi I'd like to comment on your statement where in fact I feel the same way in many cases you could be right but I am a single mom who had the honor of my daughter being allowed into this program. She is an honor student and works a job on weekends to support her car expenses. She is 16.
I am seeking public help as well for I don't want my financial hardship to keep this child from becoming what I had not.

Sincerely, RA

I would strongly suggest a little more thorough research, rather than repeating, verbatim, the propaganda the Student Ambassador Program sent you. Every high school student gets this application sent to them - even some who are not...

If your parents choose to send you overseas for any length of time, they could do it in a much less expensive manner with more peace of mind without utilizing their program. However, I think their money would be well spent by hiring an English tutor.
