Its programs are structured to help students of all ages from all walks of life achieve academic success for themselves and to extend compassion to others regardless of nationality, ethnicity, or religious beliefs.
  • The United Nations of Young Ambassadors
    is one aspect of Student Visions dedicated to mutual understanding and peace among people and nations of the world. This historical undertaking has never been attempted with students from around the world. The goal is to have participation by students from 200 countries by December 2008. Currently, 18 countries are represented by American students and International students who are in the United States this academic year under a State Department sponsored program. Their year will culminate with each student presenting an individual project before his or her country's diplomatic corps at the United Nations and a Global Topic before the General Assembly. The Ambassadors are also scheduled to speak at other colleges and universities during this academic year.
