2016 Bay Area Youth Ambassadors training has begun!
On Monday April 25th, the Bay Area Youth Ambassadors cohort began their pre-trip training.
What is the Youth Ambassadors Program?
Youth participants are competitively selected to study community development, civic engagement, as well as leadership theories and practice through a three-week international training. In 2016, San Francisco Bay Area participants travel to Uruguay; Ecuadorian participants to Houston, Texas; and Paraguayan and Uruguayan participants travel together to San Francisco, California.
Adult mentors are teachers, youth educators, or college students studying education, international relations (or related fields) who have a passion for mentoring young leaders. Mentors chaperone youth abroad for 3 weeks, live an immersive lifestyle while in another country, and support program staff in the development and facilitation of community and leadership development workshops.
