This program provides you with an opportunity to engage in meaningful work that makes an actual impact.

Benefits of Becoming a Youth Ambassador

After graduating, you will have cultivated powerful abilities like public speaking and fundraising while assisting the foundation in building its grassroots movement in the US.
