As the world stage continues to evolve one facet remains critically important, the vital art of diplomacy. I Want to be an Ambassador! camp is designed to prepare our teenagers with the skills necessary to come together and work to solve problems, whether they are close to home or in the world at large by teaching, demonstrating and practicing the skills of an Ambassador!
This seven-day summer camp experience is the only program of its kind in Western Pennsylvania, making it a unique and significant offering .The I Want to be an Ambassador! camp offers an original, innovative, and progressive curriculum that teaches useful lessons and critical thinking skills that teens can apply in their daily lives.
Over the course of several days, students learn about different cultures, talk with government and business leaders, practice presentation, garner an understanding of body cues and language, share delicious culturally diverse meals and discuss the rapid progression of current events in preparation for their engagement with actual diplomats on their trip to the embassies in Washington D.C. Here, they will see first-hand these new found skills in action as they meet with real Ambassadors and foreign diplomats for an exchange they will never forget.
Just as Ambassadors must display behaviors and attitudes that respectfully represent their country, students will learn the importance of collaboration with varied perspectives, cultures, races and ideologies to successfully tackle issues at a grassroots level.
