Mesa Youth Ambassadors Exchange

Mesa youth ambassadors

The Mesa Youth Ambassadors Exchange (MYAE) programme is an opportunity to grow the world-view of our young people, allowing them to make better-informed decisions about their future. Students in Years 12-13 can participate in the exchange with out sister city Mesa, Arizona.

 The MYAE is a collaborative exchange programme between Upper Hutt City Council and the Mesa Sister Cities Association. The programme aims to promote international friendships and an increased sense of identity through exploring culture and diversity on an international scale.

For 3 weeks, our selected ambassadors will host a student from Mesa - exchanging in a range of fun, kiwi-oriented activities. Following the departure of the American ambassadors, our selected ambassadors will be hosted in Mesa to take part in an action-packed activity schedule.

Applications are now open - apply online or pick up and information pack from the main office of your school.
