FIUTS Summer Volunteer Opportunity

This summer, FIUTS (Foundation for International Understanding Through Students) will host 20 undergraduates from Brazil, India, Indonesia, Nigeria, and Tunisia for the Study of the US Institute (SUSI) for Student Leaders on Youth, Education, and Closing the Skills Gap.  SUSIs are sponsored by the U.S. Department of State and promote a better understanding of the people, institutions, and culture of the United States among foreign students, teachers, and scholars. Learn more about the SUSI at

We are recruiting 20 UW students to be SUSI Ambassadors, volunteers who will be matched one to one with SUSI participants during their time in Seattle from June 22nd – July 21st, 2019. Ambassadors are a critical piece of the program and act as peer mentors, cultural liaisons, and student leaders. SUSI Ambassadors learn new skills, build their resumes, make international friends, and have fun! Ambassadors should expect to attend 3-4 (6-8 hours) program activities each week. Most activities are in the evenings or on weekends. ALL current University of Washington students are eligible to apply. Visit to apply by Monday, June 10th.

Questions? Come to a SUSI Ambassador Info Session in the FIUTS office (HUB 206) from 1:30-2:30pm on Thursday, June 6th or contact Kailyn Swarthout, FIUTS Education Programs Coordinator, at
