Gilbert Sister Cities Youth Ambassador Program
Congratulations to Junior Svannah Marshall. Desert Ridge High School's first student selected to the Gilbert Sister Cities Youth Ambassador Program.
Posted on 03/07/2019
Established in 1998 as a community-supported nonprofit organization, Gilbert SisterCities brings the world together through cultural, educational, trade and sports programs that promote international and intercultural knowledge and understanding. Gilbert has two sister cities: Antrim-Newtownabbey, Northern Ireland (1998) and Leshan, China (2002).  
She will be travelling to Leshan, China, for three weeks and representing Desert Ridge and the township of Gilbert. 
During their stay they will have a chance to closely experience a new culture and make lifelong friends by living with the family of their exchange “brother or sister.”  The home hosted experience makes it possible for the delegates to learn about their host cultures and customs in ways not available to a casual visitor. The Gilbert delegates will bring back a wealth of fascinating stories about their stay abroad, their contacts with the people and the precious experiences, which teach them lifelong lessons.
