Youth Ambassador Program

Each school year, the Afterschool Alliance recruits a cohort of youth ages 13 and up to serve as Youth Ambassadors and share their perspectives on afterschool programs with a national audience. Youth Ambassadors receive training on being afterschool advocates—learning how to effectively communicate about their afterschool experiences with elected officials, media, and others in leadership positions, and how to use their afterschool stories to advocate for change. Each Youth Ambassador receives a stipend of $1,000 after their participation in the program, which runs for 8 months, from approximately October to May. The deadline to apply is August 31, 2023.
