About the program

Since the program’s creation in 2008, high school students from historically underserved and low-income regions throughout France who demonstrate leadership potential and a passion for community service apply through a competitive essay and interview process to represent their country as Youth Ambassadors.  The program includes a year of intensive training and teambuilding activities in France, a two-week visit to the U.S., and a “Weekend of Reflection” during which participants reflect on their experiences as Youth Ambassadors and brainstorm on how to apply their new skills to better serve their communities.  This key Embassy youth engagement program is led in cooperation with the French government.
