ENCORE: Youth Ambassador Program
We are proud to announce the creation of our Youth Ambassador program – an opportunity for high school-aged creatives to serve as leaders in raising awareness and support for peacebuilding efforts around Foxborough. Ambassadors combine their passion for culture, journalism, arts, food, and media to bring new, youthful energy to a global peacebuilding movement.
Youth Ambassadors explore critical leadership skills, such as putting impactful projects together, raising awareness for a cause, and creatively fundraising. Plus, they learn more about how a nonprofit organization functions and gain opportunities to connect with other youth leaders through mentorship opportunities.
We are thrilled to be kicking off our pilot program in Fall 2021 with Ava Spitz of class of 2022. Ava will pilot the program’s theme ENCORE. We look forward to welcoming our first full class of Youth Ambassadors in November 2021. More information about applying to become a Youth Ambassador will be shared in the months ahead.
As an ambassador, she will work with the organization to engage youth in conversations through reflective journaling, art work and actively voicing what needs to change . This platform will be for young people to come together from around Foxborough getting to know each other, sharing culture and creating ideas about how to make their community a better place.
