The YBLA Ambassador program is the organization’s flagship platform.  Ambassadors are the face of the organization, personifying our commitment to student leadership, service, and education.

The Ambassador program begins in high school. Ambassadors are our most elite student leaders who serve as role models for their peers and change agents in their communities. Students in this program will be trained in the 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens; Certified in Toastmasters and BB&T Emerging Leaders Program.

Students selected after our application and tryout process will go through our leadership certification process. After successful completion of the Leadership certification requirements and the Ambassador Cycle, students will receive our signature “Ambassador Blazer”.

Students must:

  • Be a young black male or female in grades 9 - 11

  • 9th grade students must have been on A/B honor roll in the 8th grade

  • 10th & 11th grade students must have a minimum, cumulative, weighted GPA of 3.0
