  • Here's what some past Ambassadors have said about the program:

  • “The opportunity to be a Junior Ambassador is one that I take very seriously.  The ability to grow in social and organizational skills as well as interacting with community business leaders helps better me as I pursue God’s will for my career and improve our community” – E.B.


  • “I wanted to become a Junior Ambassador because I wanted to become more involved with my community. I have been exposed to more opportunities to better myself, my school system and my city.  I enjoy volunteering inside and outside of my school system because I want my school and community to thrive and achieve great things.” J.C.


  • “Being accepted as a Junior Ambassador is a tremendous honor for me, giving me the opportunity to have experience that I may not have realized I had available to me before. I have been more involved in my community and learned the inside and outside of local government from professionals in the field.” K.C.
