YP Ambassadors represent their local area in spreading YP’s mission and values across the state, help put on events, bring together local volunteers, and share opportunities.
YP Ambassadors lead the way, helping YP trial new ideas, develop creative initiatives, and provide input on our advocacy efforts. As a YP Ambassador, you’ll informally encourage and advise your Regional Youth Partner and fellow ambassadors as we work to amplify our voices across the state.
There are three types of YP Ambassadors: Promotional, Support, and Operational. You can choose an Ambassador role that you like best or work your way through all! Each role has a unique series of tasks that you must complete in your Ambassador role. As you work through the different items, you’ll earn some cool gear and valuable experience along the way. As an Ambassador, YOU define your commitment and have the flexibility to meet the bare minimum or go above and beyond in your support of Youth Power. While there is no specific time commitment, we encourage and support YP Ambassadors in making this role unique to their needs and interests.
