Youth Ambassadors Program with Brazil

10 visitorsBrazil

Nine teen leaders and one adult mentor from Brazil will be in Oregon from January 14-26 for a youth leadership program focusing on social justice and community service.

The student participants are 15-17 years old and are selected based on English language proficiency, academic performance and community involvement.  To ensure participants learn about Portland teen life throughout their time here, we ask that each family also have a teenage host sibling.  Host siblings will be able to participate in some program activities, and all cultural and recreational activities.  This is a great opportunity for host families to learn about another country, as well as how young people can make a difference right here in Portland.

Homestay host families provide a bed, breakfast and dinner, transportation to and from the Council’s downtown office during program days, and an American home experience.  Weekdays from 9-5 the visitors will visit youth groups, meet with civic leaders, attend workshops, and complete community service projects.  The World Affairs Council provides lunches, cultural events, transportation to meetings and appointments, and a recreational activity one day each weekend.  Learn for yourself how much fun it can be to host an international visitor!
