Youth Ambassador Program

Youth Ambassador Program │ Grades rising 7th – 10th

Becoming a youth ambassador is more than just attending camp as a counselor-in-training or youth leader. It is a prestigious role combining passion with compassion, conviction with caring, and empathy with action. Youth Ambassadors learn how to deepen their connection with the community, engaging others with a sense of purpose.

The program cultivates maturity, where students emerge as insightful representatives of the school and its community, capable of accurately conveying information about the school’s fundamental values, rich history, diverse topography and ‘attractions’.
The Youth Ambassador Program thrives by developing the skills and habits of the mind and heart to become the leaders our world needs.
