Youth Ambassadors

Partners brings together youth, ages 15–18, of limited means and/or limited international experience to build understanding among countries, increase leadership skills and develop a commitment to service. Youth engage with local government and civic organizations, build relationships with host families and their peers, and participate in skills-based training that enables and empowers them to mobilize their communities toward positive change.

Partners currently implements the program in Venezuela, Colombia and the United States. This program is funded by the U.S. Department of State.
