Twenty-one Phoenix high school students were selected as youth ambassadors to travel to Phoenix’s nine sister cities through a summer student exchange program, including three from Ahwatukee Foothills.

The Youth Ambassador Exchange Program, sponsored by Phoenix Sister Cities, offers young people from around the world an opportunity to learn about and experience each other’s cultures.

High school sophomores and juniors are selected on the basis of their communication skills, maturity, flexibility, leadership and self confidence. The students live with a host family in their designated sister cities for three weeks during the early summer and then house their host family’s son or daughter when they come to Phoenix in late July.

The three local youth ambassadors and their sister city destinations and schools are:

• Catania, Italy — Joseph Steigerwald, Desert Vista High School

• Ennis, Ireland — Kaitlyn Stiles, Mountain Pointe High School

• Himeji, Japan — Patrick Murphy, Mountain Pointe High School
