“Thank you so much for helping with our wonderful trip to Taiwan and Hong Kong. We hope to see you again!”

- Steve Shanley, Director, Coe College Jazz Band , August 2008

“What an extraordinary experience this tour was; both as an artistic and traveling endeavor. I must offer my sincere appreciation and thanks to you and to everyone at Friendship Ambassadors that help make this trip a huge success … our experiences in the Czech Republic and Hungary were sensational. I think the experience for the girls will be one they will carry with them always, and one we will all grow from. … the dancing was magnificent … It is my sincere hope that we at the NWCA continue our relationship with Friendship Ambassadors and hopefully do more of these marvelous tours … This was the BEST!”

- Mimi Wallace, Director of Dance, Northern Westchester Center for the Arts, July 2000

It is a great pleasure to send greetings to the Friendship Ambassadors Foundation’s Youth Delegates. I can’t thank you enough for demonstrating your commitment to making a difference, and I encourage each of you to continue to give back to others. On behalf of all New Yorkers, I thank you for your terrific work. I commend everyone involved with the Friendship Ambassadors Foundation. Please accept my best wishes for much continued success. Keep up the good work!”
