Junior Diplomat seeks to promote and preserve the historical frienship between France and the United States ... one friendship at a time.
Junior Diplomat has been matching French and US high school students interested in international contacts and frienship since 1991. Student participants seek an international friendship experience and the opportunity to practice their foreign language skills abroad.
Student participants are 13 to 17 years old and travel abroad for a three week homestay. They do not need to study French to participate. Friendship is the most important part of an exchange. A successfull relationship supports and fosters the best possible circumstances to interact linguistically and increase chances to access a fluency level in a foreign language
