For Inspired Students Who Are Discovering Our Future Leaders
About The Ambassador Program
Ambassador Program Benefits
Leadership Initiatives is looking for outstanding high school students who are interested in gaining real-world experience, exploring future careers, developing leadership skills, and experiencing college life.
Due to the success of Leadership Initiatives Youth Development Programs in the summer of 2018, our sponsors have allocated us with a directed grant of $400,000 dollars to assist with the expansion of our summer programs at Georgetown University.
Leadership Initiatives has decided to use this grant to partner with our extraordinary students to ensure we recruit their brightest peers from across the globe. This process will allow us to place the vast majority of our focus where it belongs: on the education, inspiration, and training of the next generation of leaders.
We have developed this ambassador program to increase the number of applicants from partner schools and to reward successful Leadership Initiatives students by creating an unparalleled benefits package for our top participants. Each ambassador will work with their peers, parents and high school counselors to determine which students at their school would be a good fit for Leadership Initiatives Youth Development Programs.
This is an opportunity for our IBIP and YDP students to locate and inspire the next generation of leaders and transform lives directly by nominating them for the 2020 summer programs.
