The Youth Ambassador Programme in partnership with IBO as part of Festival of Hope supports young changemakers to create and build upon social impact projects addressing the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Through online workshops and discussions, opportunities for mentorship and ongoing engagement in a closed Discord channel, Youth Ambassadors learn, ideate and collaborate to make a positive impact in their communities while addressing global questions. In addition to providing support to these young changemakers, this programme builds a supportive, kind, inspiring and safe online community of young people aged 12 – 19.
