Our Goals

All of our student ambassadors’ leadership potential has given them a place at our annual seminar.

Ambassadors will further their leadership skills with their classmates and make a positive impact in their school and communities.

  • Empower

    Young leaders to be “the change they would like to see” in their schools and communities.

  • Foster

    Personal growth by promoting positive thinking, goal setting and community involvement.

  • Provide

    Provide young leaders with a forum to interact and develop lifelong relationships with other young leaders.

  • Encourage

    The development of critical thinking skills through independent and interactive activities.
