The People to People Student Ambassador program promotes international understanding while building leadership skills among America’s youthPresident Dwight D. Eisenhower founded the organization in 1956. He believed that if people from different cultures could come together in peace and friendship, so eventually would countries. Since its founding, People to People has launched many international programs, including Sister Cities and Project HOPE.

Brody is looking to attend the trip to Western Canada with the program.  The 11-day experience includes meetings with government officials, interaction with other students my age, educational activities, and home stays with host families.

Brody told us, "Personally, I am looking forward to broadening my perspectives of the world and gaining a better understanding of Western Canadian history. As an Ambassador, I can also earn high school and college credit because of the many educational elements in my program."
