Upon returning home, unofficial ambassadors give presentations in their communities that represent their experience, the people they met, and what they built together.

Over the last two years, 41 exceptional undergraduates, recent graduates, and graduate students from 20 different colleges and universities have served as unofficial ambassadors to communities in four countries.
