About one-third of SYA students learn about SYA from a recent SYA student. As alumni, your voice is powerful and your stories and experiences are the best way to reach globally-minded students and inform them about SYA. Our admissions team needs your help to spread the word to future SYA students. Please support the next generation of SYA students by becoming an SYA Admissions Ambassador today.
Who is an SYA Admissions Ambassador?
An SYA Admissions Ambassador is a recent SYA graduate who supports the SYA Admissions team by sharing their experience, educating other students about SYA and empowering other students to study abroad.
Why be an Admissions Ambassador?
By promoting SYA, you will inspire global citizens and impress your teachers and classmates with your experience abroad. Plus, it's a great position to put on your resume, and you may be eligible to get some cool SYA gear like an SYA hoodie or YETI water bottle!
What does this role look like?
Throughout the 2022-2023 school year, our Admissions Team may ask Ambassadors to:
- Join the Admissions Team in virtual or in-person information sessions or presentations.
- Speak with prospective SYA students and families.
- Email your former language teachers and share information with educators about SYA.
- Give an SYA presentation at your alma mater and collect names of prospective students.
- Record a 2-minute video (or less) about how SYA has impacted your life.
- Submit a student profile for the SYA website.
