The Ambassador+Scholar Identity Institute is a weekly gathering of young scholars in future school and community leaders as an extension of Why We Can’t Wait and the Scholar Identity Institute. Young scholar ambassadors meet weekly to discuss local, national, and international issues. Additionally, the Ambassador+Scholar Identity Institute focuses on being a resilient scholar, on issues concerning health, fitness, and nutrition. 

A youth ambassador is a young person who serves as a representative and advocates for a particular cause or organization. The role of a youth ambassador can vary, depending on the organization, and who they are representing but typically involves promoting the organization’s message and values, participating in advanced activities, and advocating for change. Youth ambassadors often have a strong passion for the cause they represent and are dedicated to making a positive impact in the community and beyond. This role provides young people with a platform to use their voice and make a difference in the world, while also gaining valuable leadership and communication skills.
