March 20, 2012: The 2012 Youths Ambassadors Program was launched by Ambassador Beatrice W. Welters at the Briar Place conference room.

The program is a partnership between the Department of State and Partners of the Americas, which has a local chapter here in Trinidad and Tobago.

In her remarks, Ambassador Welters noted that the first group of Youth Ambassadors from T&T will visit the U.S. from September 4 to 24, 2012 and will truly be “emissaries with the responsibility of representing their country, culture and values to increase mutual understanding”.

She noted that the participants will return from the U.S. “with new skills, perspectives, and energy to get involved in service projects in their schools and communities”.

Also speaking at the launch was William Latchman, President of the local chapter of Partners of the Americas.
