2020 Student Exchange Applications. Memphis-area junior and senior high school students will have the opportunity of a lifetime as Memphis in May International Festival opens the application period for its annual Student Exchange Program. In 2020, selected students will travel to the honored country of Ghana as ambassadors for Memphis in May.
During the ten- to twelve-day visit in March, students will travel to specially chosen areas of the country to experience firsthand the rich culture of this leader on the African continent, including the friendly people, exotic wildlife, UNESCO historic sites and more.
In the spring of 2020, a group of high school juniors and seniors will immerse themselves in Ghana culture, and your students have the chance to be a part of it! The student ambassadors will travel with chaperones and stay with host families while they attend an area high school. Prior to departure, students will attend orientation sessions that will allow them to gain further insight into Ghana’s society and their responsibilities as Memphis in May ambassadors.
