Diplomats: Younger kids learn about their placed in the world and the society as they get initiated to the concept of community and institutions. They build emerging socio-emotional skills, focusing on empathy, cooperation, and problem solving. They start developing global awareness through exposure to diverse cultures, histories, languages and perspectives.

They get introduced to age-appropriate civic engagement and learning activities as well.

Ambassadors: Middle and high school students’ learning experience calls for a stronger socio-emotional and leadership skills development with an emphasis on multi-cultural understanding and working with diverse groups including professional settings.
