Our Youth Ambassador program is designed to inspire and empower children to become compassionate, socially conscious and responsible leaders. Teens 14-18 years of age in Los Angeles and DC are given the opportunity to make a difference by coordinating projects to improve their community in areas that include health, environment, poverty, gender, justice, the arts and education. Ambassadors actively represent their region for a one-year term and are guided by the Youth Advisory Board.
We are actively looking for youth ambassadors in the LA and DC areas. If you’re interested or would like to nominate someone, please email us here.
