My 13 year old son just got a letter in the mail inviting him to be a Student Ambassador in Japan Summer 2009. 2 years back he went to Canada for 3 weeks as an Ambassador with People to People. Does anyone here have a child who has been an Ambassador? The trip to Canada cost us about $4500 to send him. This was all airfare, travel, accommodation, meals and an incredible itinery. So although it was a lot he also had experiences of a lifetime. He skipped last years trip due to funds (Australia and New Zealand) and of course Japan is his absolute DREAM destination and has been hoping and praying he'd get Japan. The cost of the trip to Japan will be around $6000. I'm off to squeeze every egg I can get out of my chickens!
