Our Goals

All of our ambassadors’ leadership potential has given them a place at our annual seminar. Students will further their leadership skills with their classmates and make a positive impact in their school and communities.


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


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


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


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