YBLA
AMBASSADOR
PROGRAM

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.

About Program

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. This program will be delivered using a combined in-person and online method. 

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”.
