The Chandler – Tullamore Student Ambassador Program is open to Chandler students who are juniors during the 2019-2020 academic year. Students will serve as a Youth Ambassador for the City of Chandler, AZ while interacting with their host country, Ireland. Irish students will travel to Chandler and live with Chandler student's families for the duration of the exchange. While here, students will engage in a variety of trips and activities that hope to give Irish students the best representation of Chandler and Arizona culture. Chandler students will depart the Summer 2020 to spend approximately 14 days in Tullamore, Ireland. Chandler students will live with a host family, where they will be fully immersed in the Irish Culture. While abroad, Chandler students can expect an eye-opening experience learning all about our Sister City, their host family, and themselves.
