The YouthLead Ambassador program is a six-month professional development and leadership opportunity. It is for young changemakers between the ages of 18 and 35 years with a proven track record in mobilizing other young people to have a positive impact in their community. Ambassadors play a key role in bringing the benefits of YouthLead to national, regional, and local groups of changemakers, raising visibility and awareness about the YouthLead platform as a resource and networking hub for changemakers.

As part of the program, the YouthLead Ambassadors design and implement awareness campaigns on critical issues impacting young people; host learning events that contribute to knowledge, skill-building, local engagement, and peer-to-peer networking; and contribute their ideas on how to make the platform more relevant to changemakers in its network to the YouthLead team.

The Ambassadors are competitively selected from thousands of candidates through an open application process that takes place twice a year. For instance, the first and second cohort of YouthLead Ambassadors were selected from among over 2,000 applicants from over 200 countries and territories. And this time, selected applicants will commit 4-6 hours per month to act in their role between November 2020 through April 2021.
