The America Indian Foundation (AIF) is pleased to announce the third season of the Youth Ambassador Program (AYAP)! This immersive, service-learning experience for US high school students fosters an awareness of social development in India through visits with local communities, Indian peers and schools, leading NGOs, and the private sector. Students engage with an AIF-designed service-learning curriculum and gain firsthand experience of issues of poverty and other challenges facing vulnerable communities.
AYAP has partnered with the Frugal Innovation Lab in the School of Engineering at Santa Clara University to integrate curriculum and hands-on activities that cultivate empathy alongside fundamental technology skills.
Applications for the 2016 program in Bangalore, June 18-July 3, are open now! We are looking for passionate high school students with an interest in building cross-cultural and global citizenship skills, and learning how to apply their learnings to improve the lives of underprivileged communities in India and beyond.
