Youth Ambassador Program

  • Youth Ambassador Program

    The Youth Sponsorship program is now a team effort between the Child and Youth

    Services (CYS), the School Liaison Officers (SLO), schools, and other resources to

    provide transitioning youth with information, a sense of belonging and an opportunity to

    make friends. Youth Ambassadors are students 3rd-5th grade, one per class, who step

    up and serve as leaders of their class and school. Applicants for Youth Ambassadors

    should hold the following qualities:


    • Respectful of individual differences

    • Willing to listen to others

    • Patient and flexible

    • Passing all subjects at each grading period

    • Willing to lead and serve others

    • Communicates well with others

    • Positive Attitude

    • Problem Solver

    • Good moral character

    • Serves as a good role model for other students


    Meadows Youth Ambassadors will meet regularly throughout the year with the

    counselors and other staff to work on leadership and service activities. Each Classroom

    Youth Ambassador will be teamed up with a younger grade classroom to serve a peer

    mentor to the students in the assigned class. Youth Ambassadors will also be asked to

    conduct campus tours for new students, and also, will serve as a support to students

    who are moving or experiencing deployment or other military related transitions.
