"We are incredibly excited to have this caliber of education experts on our

more important," said Peg Thomas, president of People to People Ambassador
Programs.

People to People Ambassador Programs' intention is to tap the education
advisory boards' wide knowledge and global connections, integrate their
expertise into perfecting best in class programs that prepare students to be
competitive in the global education and career marketplace and help prepare
students across the country to be competitive in a global society through
unique educational travel opportunities.

"National PTA's mission is to make every child's potential a reality," said
Eric R. Hargis, Executive Director of National PTA. "We see opportunities
like the People to People Ambassador Program as a great way for young people
to develop leadership skills that can last a lifetime."

The education advisory board held its first meeting on November 7, 2012 in
Washington, D.C. to discuss the role that experiential learning plays in
preparing students to be globally ready. The education advisory board and the
People to People Ambassador Programs management team will meet at least three
times a year to analyze and innovate programming to keep People to People
Ambassador Programs' curriculum in step with changes in the educational and
economic landscape, and maintain a leadership position in educational
experiences through student travel.
