International Internship & Work Program for Global Expo
Age: 19 – 21
Deadline: February 26, 2021
Global Ties U.S. is accepting applications for Youth Ambassadors (U.S. citizens ages 18-29) to serve as guides and cultural ambassadors at the U.S. Pavilion. These energetic, friendly individuals will serve as the Faces of the United States to millions of Expo visitors, providing a human connection to the United States and its territories and reflecting its geographic and cultural diversity.
Youth Ambassadors can expect to have daily encounters with international visitors who may speak one or several languages. The ideal Youth Ambassador is multilingual in English and one of the following languages: Arabic, Mandarin, Farsi, Hindi, Russian, and Urdu. Additional language skills in Bengali, French, or Spanish may also be useful. While an asset, language abilities are not an application requirement for Youth Ambassadors. All applications will be reviewed, regardless of language skills.
A total of 75 Youth Ambassadors will be selected and assigned to one of three cohorts:
- 24 to serve in Fall 2021 (September-January)
- 24 to serve in Spring 2022 (January-April)
- 27 to serve the “Full-Term” of the Expo from September 2021-April 2022
