Digital Youth Ambassadors Program with Canada is a virtual leadership exchange program for Canadian youth ages 15-17 and adult educators. The program is sponsored by the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs at the U.S. Department of State, with funding provided by the U.S. Government. The program is administered by World Learning in partnership with Fulbright Canada, with programmatic support from the U.S. Embassy in Ottawa.
