Make things better in your community while enhancing your career prospects.
Aged between 16 and 26 and keen to make a difference in your community? By joining our Young Ambassador programme, you’ll be opening up a world of opportunities for yourself. As well as representing the young people who live in your community, this is a chance to learn new skills, get some volunteering experience and play a role in shaping services in your area.
What would I do?
Being a Young Ambassador means getting involved in decision-making. You’ll have the opportunity to do estate inspections with us, identify any local issues and help us come up with solutions. You'll be able to give us ideas on how we can improve your neighbourhood for the benefit of the young people living there and the wider community. You can represent a block of flats, a street or even a whole estate. You'll be able to attend your local resident panel meetings to put forward your ideas and concerns. And after a year, you’ll have the opportunity to do a work placement that matches your career aspirations.
Is it for me?
You don’t need any formal qualifications to be a young ambassador. We’ll give you training and ongoing support. But you’ll need to be committed, enthusiastic and feel comfortable talking to people. Becoming a Young Ambassador gives you access to opportunities might not find anywhere else. You’ll get practical, real-life experience and a work placement that’s tailored to you.
Hands up if you want to be a Young Ambassador!
