Global Ambassadors Program

The Global Ambassador program provides an opportunity for UH Hilo international students to serve as “cultural ambassadors” in the local community. Global Ambassadors present cultural, historical and other interesting information about their countries and cultures to Big Island schools, UH Hilo classes, and community groups.

One objective of the program is to help others better understand your country and culture and eliminate stereotypes about other people and cultures around the world. Another objective is to give you more contact with the local culture and community. By being exposed to Native Hawaiian, local and U.S. American culture, you will gain a better understanding of Hawai╩╗i and the U.S. To volunteer as a Global Ambassador, please fill out the application and submit it electronically (you will need to log in using your UH email account).
