For 50 years, People to People Ambassador Programs has been changing the world through educational student travel.
Their students have witnessed and participated in some of the most amazing moments in global history, blazed trails of international peace and met many of the world’s most influential people.
And, it all started with a President…
In 1956, President Eisenhower envisioned world peace and his solution was the People to People movement. Western civilization had just survived the second world war. The fractured post-war world was larger than today and people were far more isolated. The need for enduring peace was paramount to the global post-war recovery.
Fast-forward to today. Our society is a global one. Borders have collapsed, the world has opened up and people of all cultures have the opportunity to interact. Fifty years ago, traveling to China was almost unheard of. Now, there are daily non-stop flights from San Francisco to Beijing. And, as we prepare our children for the world of tomorrow, these interconnected cultural ties will only continue to strengthen.
With an interconnected world comes challenges. Lack of cultural understanding and respect is a critical obstacle to personal, organizational and international success. Global citizens are prepared for an interconnected world.
For 50 years, People to People Ambassador Programs has provided educational travel for students across the globe. Located in Spokane, WA, People to People Ambassador Programs is home to more than 200 employees who are dedicated to the design and delivery of each People to People program.
With more than 20,000 Ambassadors traveling annually, People to People Ambassador Programs continues to play a significant role in increasing global awareness.
As one of the the world’s most recognized and respected educational travel providers, People to People Ambassador Programs travels both students and professionals around the globe.
500,000 Students and teachers have participated in People to People Ambassador Programs.
