Tucson Korea Ambassador Program

Mission

The Tucson-Korea Ambassador Program builds cultural, language, and friendship ties between students from Tucson Unified School District and students from Ulleung-gun and Yeonyang-gun in South Korea.

Program Description

Students from Ulleung-gun and Yeonyang-gun in South Korea will be hosted for 3 1/2 weeks by the students, families, school and larger community of participating Middle Schools in Tucson, Arizona. Trained student-ambassadors from each of the host sites will partner with each of the Korean students during the school day to form cross-cultural experiences and bonds. Host families from each site will welcome each of the Korean students into their homes so that they will experience living with an American family. Weekly tours of local sites and cultural venues will be collaboratively arranged by the district and the Korean community to provide students with a fun and enriching experience.
