A great percentage of today’s teenage youth lack the support systems necessary for positive personal growth. Through the use of strengths-based programming, Youth Ambassadors provides a comprehensive youth development program that addresses these social and academic challenges. We facilitate on the notion that our students are resilient – we help them recognize their own strengths.
As a part of our program, students receive instruction in 21st Century life & job skills, including business etiquette, anger management, crisis resolution, goal setting, time management, smart choices, healthy relationships, and recognition of impediments to success. In health class, youth learn to recognize compromising health behaviors and understand solutions to work toward targeted outcomes. Youth also explore personal thoughts and emotions through expressive art and creative journal writing.
Youth Ambassadors empowers the teens to transform their ideas into viable businesses. Entrepreneurship is a catalyst for economic growth, creating jobs, fostering innovation, and driving overall prosperity.
Financial literacy is crucial for individuals to make informed decisions about budgeting, investing, and managing their money effectively. It empowers people to navigate the complexities of the financial world, promoting financial stability, independence, and the ability to plan for the future.
