Trauma, in all its forms, is the most significant problem facing our school system and students. Expressed as unresolved hurt and pain, trauma impedes students’ ability to perform to their optimal capabilities and often leads to destructive behaviors. Recent studies show that the COVID pandemic has exacerbated the situation. The tragedy is the loss of unrealized human potential that will never benefit our families, society, or the world.

What Is The Ambassadors Journey?
Practice is Everything
Emotional Resilience isn’t a trait you are born with. It is a learned skill that improves with practice and is mastered over time. It is the ability to adapt to stressful situations or crises. Highly resilient individuals adapt to adversity with minimal long-term negative effects. A lack of emotional resilience leads to anxiety, depression, and long-term emotional, physical, and mental health issues.
“Emotional resilience and connectedness are protective factors for suicide prevention and the promotion of positive behaviors.”

Our Learning Model
The Ambassadors Emotional Resilience Learning Model includes hands-on learning, interacting with peers with empathy and accountability, and putting into practice concepts, principles, and insights which help students overcome emotional obstacles. It helps students find their voice and provides a safe space to uncover and process their real-life issues. The confidence gained during the program also shapes students’ character and helps them be a positive influence on others in their school and community.
Life Training Event
The Ambassadors of Compassion program starts with Advanced LIFE Training event. This highly energized 2-hour assembly introduces students to the Ambassadors content and process. It gets them emotionally connected to the program, their coaches, and each other.
The Ambassadors of Compassion program revolves around small group discussions where students have the opportunity to personally examine and practice life-ready principles with their peers. Led by an Ambassador Coach, these groups meet once a week to view the session video and discuss the questions in the Ambassadors Coach Session Guide.
Our online journal walks students through introspective questions and weekly calls-to-action specifically designed to help them discover who they are, identify and release obstacles holding them back, and take responsibility for their own lives. Challenging them to start taking the actual steps necessary to achieve their goals and dreams, and to be accountable for their own outcomes.
