VolunTEENnation Ambassadors convene and organize youth in their community to promote service and to collectively engage youth to drive change. As a volunTEENnation Ambassador, you will bring creativity and energy to your community to maximize the power of youth to make a difference. We'll help you engage your friends and family, inspire those around you to take action, and guide and encourage you to meet with political, non-profit and business leaders in your community to discuss how they can help support youth to tackle and problem-solve challenges communities face.
