UVA Center for Politics Recruiting Hosts for Youth Ambassadors from Argentina and Chile

(CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va.) – From Thursday, March 19 until Monday, March 30, the University of Virginia Center for Politics will serve as a host organization for the Youth Ambassadors Program for Argentina and Chile. The program is operated by the Center’s Global Perspectives on Democracy Program in partnership with World Learning and sponsored by the U.S. Department of State Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs.

This exchange will include 13 high school students and two adult mentors from throughout Chile and Argentina. To provide a rich cultural experience, the Youth Ambassadors will reside in the homes of Charlottesville-area residents, and the Center for Politics is currently in search of host households. A host can take a variety of forms: households with children, singles, couples without children, retirees, and others over the age of 21 are encouraged to inquire about this opportunity.

Hosts are expected to provide a room with a bed (although students may share a room with a host sibling of same gender and age), include students in family activities, provide meals outside of official program activities, and provide transportation to and from UVA on weekdays.
