The Youth Ambassador Exchange Program, sponsored by Phoenix Sister Cities, offers young Phoenix residents an opportunity to learn firsthand about another culture through a reciprocal six-week summer exchange program.

The deadline to apply for program is 5 p.m. Friday, Dec. 18.

Phoenix resident high school sophomores and juniors are selected based on their communication skills, maturity, flexibility, leadership and cultural inclusion. The students live with a host family in their designated sister cities for three weeks during the early summer and then open their home to their international counterpart when they visit Phoenix in July.

Applications are available at; for more information, call 602-534-3751 or e-mail
