A great percentage of today’s teenage youth lack the academic and family support necessary for positive personal growth. Through the use of educational and creative programming, Youth Ambassadors provides a comprehensive youth development program that addresses these social and academic challenges.
As a part of our program, students receive instruction in life skills, including business etiquette, anger management, crisis resolution, goal setting, time management, smart choices, healthy relationships, and recognition of impediments to success. Students also explore personal thoughts and feelings through therapeutic art and journal writing.
In addition, the Youth Ambassadors program is designed to be a “first job” experience. Through the receipt of a paycheck, Ambassadors learn banking skills and financial literacy, workplace parameters, and personal accountability.
