Is the People-to-People Student Ambassador program bogus? They sent me a brochure.
Is it kind of like those other bogus youth leadership things or National High School Scholars or Who's Who or is it for real?

It is a real organization. I know several kids who have participated in one of their programs and enjoyed themselves. However, it's not something that you are really selected for (they send thousands of these out to mailing lists) and it probably won't add much to your college applications. Bottomline: if it's something you'd like to do, do it --- but don't spend the money thinking it's some sort of honor to participate.

I've always gotten invitations to their student ambassador trips, but unfortunately, I never had enough money to attend any of them.

My cousin traveled Europe with People to People and had a really wonderful experience. My next door neighbor went to Ireland with them too. THey're legit.

It's a wonderful program, but not something that will get you into college. There is an interview process, but I was told that it's just there to separate out the "losers" as one person mentioned. The program is very expensive, something like 6,000 dollars for the 6 or so weeks. My friend went to New Zealand and Australia one year and had the best time of her life. Don't do it if you're looking for something to put on your college app, do it for fun.
