Junior Ambassadors

The mission of the Junior Ambassadors program is to provide Creighton students with an understanding of our world, its diverse cultures, and Americas relationship with them

In its 27th year, the Jr. Ambassadors Program has provided hundreds of students with the opportunity to travel to different countries to learn the culture, language and history. To prepare for the trip, students learn a new language and study the traditions of what makes that country unique. 

I have traveled to 76 countries, and it all started with the Jr. Ambassadors Program. I always thought travel was for the rich, that it was a luxury I wouldn't ever be privileged to experience as a child in the foster care system.  But there I was, at the age of 13 boarding my first airplane and off to change my life.  I now understand the value of meeting other people face-to-face, hearing their stories and learning from their experiences, as well as sharing mine with them.  The world is no longer off limits to me.  It's something I need.  In fact, it's something I deserve.  It's something everyone, no matter their background, deserves.  I am now a military officer, I've studied 2 languages and hold a master's degree from a foreign university.  I will sail my ship around the world as an ambassador of the US, with confidence and humility.  And it all started with the Jr. Ambassadors.”
