Brazil Youth Ambassadors Program

The Northern Nevada International Center was awarded a  U.S. Department of State Program called the Brazil Youth Ambassadors Program.  Ten Brazilian high school students (5 boys and 5 girls) visited Reno from January 14-26, 2015 to learn about Social Justice and Volunteerism.  

What did the youth ambassadors do while in Northern Nevada? 

  • The youth attended workshops and lectures at the University of Nevada along with different local non-profit organizations;
  • They participated in volunteer activities in conjunction with the Martin Luther King Day celebration;
  • They spent one day at Robert M. McQueen high school shadowing a high school student.
