“Urban Youth Ambassador New York City Cultural Exchange trip,” June 11th-14th, 2019 for 8 Oakland youth 12-15. UYA Cultural Exchange trip is a dynamic opportunity for deserving youth to Visit New York City's historical landmarks and cultural heritage sites and engage in team building exercises with NYC youth from diverse backgrounds and perspectives.
Urban Youth Ambassadors has provided growth opportunities and travel experiences locally that increase participants confidence, college readiness, critical thinking, public speaking and global citizenship skills for over 8 years. This year, participants of the Fall the UYA Citizens School Apprenticeship at Roots International Academy where nominated for this dynamic educational opportunity to visit New York City's historical landmarks and cultural heritage sites and engage in team building exercises with NYC youth from diverse backgrounds and perspectives.
Highlights of our New York City Trip include:
-United Nations Tour
- Harlem cultural tour and soul food buffet
- Youth led team building with NYC peers and more!
The experiences they will have while traveling will serve as life-long lessons and will undoubtedly advance their perspective on themselves and their place in the world. It is my hope that all deserving students selected can participate in this unique learning opportunity to represent Oakland will have the chance.
