In June of 2018, a group of four Chandler students went to Tullamore, Ireland to meet with their “twin” students from Tullamore. All eight students returned to Chandler, AZ for an 11-day visit in July
The Chandler – Tullamore Student Ambassador Program is open to Chandler students who are juniors during the 2018-2019 academic year. Students will serve as a Youth Ambassador for the City of Chandler, AZ while interacting with their host country, Ireland. They depart the Summer 2019 to spend approximately 10 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. Shortly after the students return to Chandler, AZ, the “twinned” Tullamore students will travel to Chandler and live with Chandler students' 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.
