2017 Fort Worth Youth Ambassadors

Eight Fort Worth Country Day students served as Fort Worth Youth Ambassadors this year through Fort Worth Sister Cities. These students opened the door to the world and explored the history, languages, foods, traditions and arts of Fort Worth’s sister cities, of which there are eight: Reggio Emilia, Italy; Trier, Germany; Nagaoka, Japan; Indonesia; Budapest, Hungary; Toluca, Mexico; Mbabane, Swaziland; and Guiyang, China.  Students from grades 8-12 represented Fort Worth and the U.S. to various cities this summer, while also learning the importance of global volunteerism.
 
Before their trips, the students became Citizen Diplomats, as deemed by Mayor of Fort Worth Betsy Price, with a mission to promote Fort Worth and improve relations between the U.S. and the rest of the world.
