About Us

The Program

The Ambassadors program is designed to help youth define who they are and where they are going in life. Students will gain a greater confidence in their own strengths and abilities, while at the same time, enhancing their lives by giving them a new sense of purpose and belonging. 

The program guides youth through the importance of taking responsibility and initiative. Students learn to identify and evaluate the various influences in their lives as they learn to forgive and release hurt.  As a result, students learn to overcome negative experiences and disappointments and build a stronger perception of self-worth.

"In my 25 years working with complex students, these (the Ambassadors of Compassion Program) are the most positive results I’ve ever seen from a program like this. It prepares students to learn and helps them develop the character and social traits that support their transition into adulthood.”

"The Ambassadors of Compassion program has provided our students with the unique chance to give back to the community, and throughout the process, find their voice. It has provided our students with an overwhelming amount of individual confidence and has allowed them to not only find out what they stand for, but also realize who they really are."
