International Ambassadors Program
The goal of the International Ambassadors Program (IAP) is to give students in Wards 7 & 8 an opportunity to develop an understanding and appreciation of international travel, art, and culture.
Each of the Lockridge Ambassadors return to Washington, D.C. with not only an appreciation of African history, art, and culture, but also a desire to return to the continent to explore more about their heritage.
Benin, Africa: 2022
In July 2022, five Lockridge Student Ambassadors will travel to Benin. A primary focus is currently visiting countries that played a significant role in history with the African slave trade to America. In the future, however, travel may possibly be expanded to include Central and South Americas as well.
