Each year Southlake youth have the opportunity to represent the city as a Youth Ambassador to one of Southlake’s Sister Cities - Tome, Japan and Suzhou Wuzhong, China. As part of the Southlake Sister Cities Youth Ambassador Program, the Youth Ambassadors are immersed in a cultural experience while living with host families and experiencing a variety of activities planned by the city and their hosts. 

Serving as a Southlake Sister Cities Youth Ambassador provides the opportunity for friendship and a life-changing experience while fulfilling and underscoring the mission of the Sister Cities International program of “bringing the world together through education and cultural exchange.”

“One day I will have to hand this program to others, and it will be very difficult for me when that day arrives,” said President of Southlake Sister Cities Jeff Wang, “Because it has become part of my life, and these students almost become my own after each trip.” 

The trip to Suzhou Wuzhong, China, will take place March 5-14, 2015 and the trip to Tome, Japan will take place June 8-15, 2015.
