People to People Student Ambassador


My name is Gianna Vollano, and I am a 13-year-old freshman at Wilbur Cross High School in New Haven, CT. I was recently accepted to participate in the People to People Student Ambassador Program next summer. I am one of 40 students representing Connecticut. This 19-day educational program will be traveling through France, England, Ireland, and Wales. Going on this adventure will help me to understand different cultures and give me the opportunity to learn first-hand about new places. Our curriculum focuses on the myths and legends of the region. We will be led by experienced teachers and be engaged in hands-on activities daily. I will get to experience home stays, increase my global awareness, build leadership skills, and develop skills outside of my comfort zone. Going on this incredible journey will give me high school credits and community service hours. In case you haven't heard of People to People, President Dwight D. Eisenhower founded People to People in 1956. He believed that people from different cultures should come together in peace and friendship. Would you be willing to help sponsor my trip? Any donation (big or small) will be enormously appreciated. To show my appreciation for your generosity, I will volunteer two hours of community service, for every $500 that I raise. Thank you for supporting me in my goal to explore other countries.
