Do you know a young leader with a passion for helping kids? Is there a youth volunteer who has worked with your organization to improve the lives of their peers or younger children, and now they want to do more? Encourage them to apply to represent your state in the National Child Awareness Month (NCAM) Youth Ambassador Program, a year-long program for young leaders ages 16-22 to create change around issues facing youth.


Fifty-one NCAM Youth Ambassadors will be selected - one per state + DC. Ambassadors receive a $1,000 grant, an all-expense paid, three-day leadership training in September 2015 in Washington, DC, and ongoing training and networking opportunities. Interested youth can find more information and apply by June 10 at


For questions about this program, contact YSA Grants Manager Sarah Barrie.
