Is the People to People Ambassador Program a safe way for young adults to travel?
NOTE: Anyone can go that can afford it will go. They interview you, but turn nobody away. Teachers can accept students, but not deny them. Students can be invited to the local information meeting through direct nominations by teachers, former student ambassadors or their parents. In areas where we… do not receive direct nominations we enlist the help of student listing organizations which are the same organizations colleges and universities use to recruit students for their programs. Our goal is to allow as many qualified students the opportunity to participate in our programs. Students can also request an invitation on line. Regardless of how students receive an invitation, all students must be selected through an interview process. If you choose to enroll after your information meeting, students must submit three letters of recommendation and be interviewed by local delegation leaders. We rely on this selection process to help us accept the best students and ensure that they are appropriate candidates for the program. If nomination information is available, we can provide that information, please give us a call at 800-669-7882. We look forward to speaking with you! (MORE)
Answer . It is in the nature of all species to try to expand their range.
It is a program for students from grade 6-12 to travel to foreign countries with an organization\n. \nIt's a non-profit group that has a sister for-profit company that books the travel. The prices are quite high, the supervision isn't consistently good, but some people report good experiences. Ther…e are similar programs that cost much less.\n. \nBased on personal experience. An incredible and eye opening program. Yes, the prices are high but the organization is great about helping students raise the money on their own for their trip. It is a great way to learn and have the time of your life at the same time. If you get an invite, especially to the Australia program, GO, it is worth it! (MORE)
Yes, People to People Student Ambassadors is a legitimate program. I have been on their trips and they are completely legitimate and very well organized.
It will cost more than what it would cost to do the same thing yourself. . If you search the web for this question, you will see people up to 2009 quoting prices like $3000 for domestic US trips and $5000+ for foreign trips outside the US. It depends on which trip you go on. Like the Antarctica on…e is about $10,000 and one of the Australia ones was like $6,700. An additional potential "cost" and concern is your child's safety. You will also find online that the People to People student ambassador program has had a major public relations failure after numerous complaints about neglect, including the case of a high school student who died. His parents sued the program and reached a settlement this year. The details are not pretty. See http://www.consumeraffairs.com for a lot of information about the problems with the People to People program. (MORE)
If you can pay, you can go. You are interviewed but teachers can only accept, not deny students! It's a business therefore they will not turn paying customers away. They qualify only if they are an exellent student, and their educational record stands out from the rest.

Yes, adults have reasons to drink and teens don't. I'm an underage myself. I drink occasionally because it calms my nerves when I have no marijuana.

Inexperience and insecurity.. Aswell, you have more chance of getting an addiction when you're young.. Aswell, you merely refer to a steriotype. I'm Irish and young, and I always refuse alcohol. Drinking is but a mere personal choice.
A good question. Some authorities believe that the developing brain in young people may be more susceptible to the changes that accompany addiction, particularly to alcohol. However, there is no empirical evidence to support the theory so far. Such issues are affected by a variety of other things…. For instance, alcoholism is largely hereditary. Young people who come from families of drinkers are likely to drink early themselves, and therefore trigger any tendency to become addicted to alcohol much sooner than those who might begin drinking later due to family or social strictures. There is also the consideration that young people have fewer learned responses that would tend to mitigate extreme behavior of any kind, including drinking (they simply lack maturity and the ability to make mature decisions). Answer: We don't know for sure. It's possible. (MORE)

As part of the settlement of my family's lawsuit against Ambassadors Group, docleaf, et al., I have been asked to request that your company remove statements from your website that may characterize, impugn, threaten, defame or disparage the defendants. The following correctly states the current stat…e of the matter between the parties and may be used in place of any removed comments: Wrongful Death Lawsuit for Tyler R. Hill Against Ambassadors Group, docleaf, et al., Officially Settled MOUND, Minn., Aug. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Allen and Sheryl Hill of Mound, Minn., today announced the official settlement of their civil action for wrongful death of their 16-year-old son, Tyler Hill; invasion of privacy; and fraud against Ambassadors Group Inc., People to People International, docleaf Ltd., Sue Stahr, Pat Veum-Smith, Angela Hanson, Josh Aberle et al. The Hills signed the release on July 30. The terms of the settlement are confidential. Tyler died on a People to People Student Ambassador Trip to Japan on June 29, 2007. Since Tyler's death, the Hill's have been on a passionate mission to protect other traveling youth and have sought accountability, justice, restitution and reform. REFORM: Traveling Youth's Standards of Safety Legislation The Hill's mission for the safety of kids participating in travel programs is far from over. They seek reform through a bi-partisan federal law and the Traveling Youth's Standards of Safety (TY's SOS legislation), and have engaged Senator Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) and Congressman Erik Paulsen (R-MN). The pursued legislation is to ensure safety measures, sanctions and penalties are in place to protect traveling youth. No safety standards, sanctions or penalties exist to protect children's health and safety rights while entrusted to third parties, especially during travel programs. Children have been denied health care, died, hurt, abandoned, raped and suffered severe illnesses, while traveling with some student travel programs. There is currently no oversight committee watch dogging the student travel industry. Danielle Grijalva, director for the Committee for Safety of Foreign Exchange Students, applauds the Hill's advocacy for safety and sanctions during travel abroad programs. She said, "I receive numerous complaints about other travel agencies from children and their parents about supervisors being intoxicated, molestations, children being denied health care when they are sick, unsanitary living quarters and 'unaccounted for' children. Parents need to inform themselves of the safety record of agencies and supervisors they are entrusting their kids to." Grijalva recommends parents contact foreign police authorities to report abuse and then contact local, state and federal agencies to report child endangerment. Until laws are passed to impose sanctions and potential imprisonment, Grijalva believes that egregious stories like Tyler's will remain all too common. About Tyler Hill Tyler Hill was born on June 6, 1991, on the anniversary of D-Day, in Edina, Minn. A natural athlete and honor roll student, Tyler was a first year MVP for rugby, a tight end in football, a winger in hockey and an advanced scuba diver. He was a junior officer of the Mound Westonka High School DECA club, and he discovered and reported a bomb threat to school authorities and was recognized for his actions. Ty will be remembered for his big smile and tender heart. He passed away on June 29, 2007, while on a People to People Student Ambassadors trip to Tokyo, Japan, apparently from severe dehydration.

Most New Yorkers do not own cars, instead relying on public transportation to get them where they need to go. The primary mode of transportation is the subway system, which runs through every borough except Staten Island. Buses are also used, but since traffic in the city is so congested, they can b…e very slow. However, buses can be very helpful when travelling crosstown (west/east) in Manhattan, since most of the subway lines run only north/south through Manhattan. There are also taxis, which are very convenient, but expensive. . New York is very much a walking city; the average New Yorker walks at least a few miles a day. If a destination is less than 20 blocks (about one mile) away, most people just walk there, instead of taking public transportation. Additionally, there is often quite a bit of distance between subway stations. Sometimes, the nearest subway stop is more than half a mile away, so this also contributes to the amount of walking New Yorkers need to do. (MORE)
