Goodwill Ambassadors

Each year the National Cherry Blossom Festival selects a group of young adults to be part of one of its most highly regarded and signature programs: the Goodwill Ambassador Program. The final group is comprised of talented, energetic individuals who have a true passion for international relations, community involvement, and the Festival.

The experience of a Goodwill Ambassador is a rewarding and once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. The Festival’s official Goodwill Ambassadors are actively engaged with the Festival through:

  • Planning and leading hands-on activities for children at the Festival’s Events (Smithsonian American Art Museum Cherry Blossom Family Festival, Blossom Kite Festival, Southwest Fireworks Festival, and Anacostia River Festival)Waterfront Acadmey Classroom4
  • Representing the Festival at events including tree plantings, and community events affiliated with the National Cherry Blossom Festival or Japanese/Japanese American community
  • Acting as cultural and educational liaisons at Washington, DC-area schools to teach children about history of the gift of trees and Japanese language and culture.
  • Fostering US-Japan relations through attendance at Festival events and cultural exchange programs

Applications for the 2019 Goodwill Ambassador Program will be posted mid-September. Please contact nwright@ncbfdc.org for additional information.
