FLEX Technology Ambassador Program

Country: Georgia
Category: Information Technology Programs


The Technology Ambassadors Program (TAP) was an innovative technology and leadership program for Future Leaders Exchange (FLEX) students studying in the United States. Using a variety of technologies, including weblogs and digital storytelling, students worked both online and in a Vermont workshop to create their own community development projects. TAP explored the benefits and uses of technology and the role of leadership in emerging democracies. The curriculum incorporated concepts of a civil society and demonstrated how technology can be used to enhance current and future initiatives throughout Eurasia. TAP graduated 90 students in three years, benefiting 12 countries, and created a network of motivated, inspiring and talented young adults who shared a desire to improve their own communities.
