(AWC) Youth Ambassadors
Fourteen AWC Community Youth Ambassadors assist AWC Ambassadors in becoming responsible, productive, successful adults through a comprehensive holistic leadership program, applying culturally sensitive tools. The programs typically include activities such as service-learning, intercultural exchange, civic engagement, outdoor education, organizing events, mentorship, intergenerational knowledge exchange, work experience, public speaking, and life skills development.
The development of leadership contributes greatly to the positive development of young people and their communities. Leadership skills, such as goal-setting, problem-solving and sound decision-making, are not just necessary for leaders - these skills are needed for success in the communities we serve and in today's world.
