Youth Service America: National Child Awareness Month Youth Ambassador Program
The National Child Awareness Month Youth Ambassador Program, administered by Youth Service America (YSA), trains youth (ages 16-22) to create change around critical issues facing youth today. Ambassadors will receive support, advocacy training, and guidance for their respective service projects. Fifty-one Ambassadors will be selected – one per state and the District of Columbia – creating a powerful national network of young people who raise their collective voice in service to other youth. Each Ambassador will receive a $1,000 grant and will be flown to Washington, DC, for a leadership training program. Youth throughout the U.S. that are collaborating with a sponsoring organization or school are eligible to apply. Applications are due June 19, 2014. (Applications submitted by May 19 will be considered “early” and outstanding candidates may be selected at that time.) Visit the YSA website to submit an online application.
