We are all
ambassadors.

Through School Year Abroad, thousands of families have watched their children become self-assured global citizens. Over 8,000 alumni now influence communities and professions in 77 nations and counting. Together, we know the value of looking at the world from an utterly different point of view. We are all ambassadors—for SYA itself and for the values we share of understanding, empathy and intellectual curiosity. Through The Campaign for SYA, we send more maverick thinkers and bridge builders into the world. There is no more important gift we can give to the future. Join the campaign today.
