The National Child Awareness Month Youth Ambassador Program is a project of YSA (Youth Service America) and Festival of Children Foundation. This year-long Ambassadorship trains youth (ages 16-22) to combat critical issues facing youth.
Each Ambassador will receive support, advocacy training in Washington, D.C., and planning-guidance for their respective service projects. Fifty-one Youth 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 $1,000 grant and will be flown to Washington D.C. for an amazing training program.Agency(s):
