BE A PART OF THIS HIGHLY-REGARDED SIGNATURE PROGRAM!
Each year the National Cherry Blossom Festival selects a group of young adults to be part of one of its most highly regarded and signature programs: the Goodwill Ambassador Program. Goodwill Ambassadors engage with the local community and are an indispensable resource for Festival attendees and the Festival.
The final group is comprised of talented, energetic individuals who have a true passion for international relations, community involvement, and the Festival.
THE GOODWILL AMBASSADOR EXPERIENCE
The experience of a Goodwill Ambassador is a rewarding and once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. The Festival’s official Goodwill Ambassadors are actively engaged with the Festival through:
- Planning and leading hands-on activities for children at the Festival’s signature events
- Representing the Festival at events including tree plantings and community events
- Acting as cultural and educational liaisons at Washington, DC-area schools to teach children about the history of the gift of trees and Japanese language and culture
- Fostering US-Japan relations through attendance at Festival events and cultural exchange programs
The deadline to submit an application for the 2020 Goodwill Ambassador Program is approaching! For any questions or other related inquiries, please contact Lillian Iversen at firstname.lastname@example.org or 202.638.8372
