There are three kinds of people in the world. The first see something wrong and stand around without doing anything, the second complain about it, but do nothing and the third sit up, pay attention and want to immediately take action. Our dynamic group of Youth Ambassadors is part of the third kind! 8-25 years old school and college students who are determined to make a difference.
Akshaya Patra’s Youth Ambassadors (YA) are motivated, driven young people who identify with the cause of feeding children just like themselves, but who do not have the means afforded to them.
Youth Ambassadors learn to hone leadership skills, run events (big or small), develop sales and marketing techniques, manage finances and comprise an outstanding group of change makers with a plan!
Youth Ambassadors have fun being a part of a global organization that interacts, exchanges ideas and solves problems.
Just some of the additional benefits include:
- A written recommendation letter/certificate
- Mentorship possibilities for eligible YA’s in areas of business, arts, science, and social and cultural self improvement.
- Prizes, service trips to India, volunteering assignments within the US
- Recognition at chapter events, opportunity to speak and present Akshaya Patra at public events.
