Tucson-Korea Ambassador Program (TKAP)
The Mission of the Tucson-Korea Ambassador Program
The Tucson-Korea Ambassador Program builds cultural, language, and friendship ties between students from Tucson Unified School District and students from Ulleung-gun and Yeonyang-gun in South Korea.

Program Description
Students from Ulleung-gun and Yeonyang-gun in South Korea are hosted for 3 1/2 weeks by the students, families, school and larger community of participating Middle Schools in Tucson, Arizona. Trained student-ambassadors from each of the host sites will partner with each of the Korean students during the school day to form cross-cultural experiences and bonds. Host families from each site welcome each of the Korean students into their homes so that they will experience living with an American family. Weekly tours of local sites and cultural venues are collaboratively arranged by the district and the Korean community to provide students with a fun and enriching experience. In turn selected students from our school are invited by South Korea for a two week exchange in their respective provinces to experience Korean culture and share experiences with students from Korea.
