Youth Ambassador Program
Calling all high schoolers with a passion for changemaking!
AIF is committed to fostering the next generation of international social impact leaders right here in the United States–as it is precisely these young minds that will further equity, inclusion, and opportunity for marginalized communities across the world.
As part of this mission, we offer the AIF Youth Ambassador Program (YAP)—an avenue for motivated high school students with a passion for international development and social change to help create a more equitable India. Working individually or in a team of up to three, Youth Ambassadors can design and implement fundraising campaigns to support AIF’s overall mission or focus specifically on one of our award-winning programs: Digital Equalizer (DE), Learning and Migration Program (LAMP), Market Aligned Skills Training (MAST), and Maternal and Newborn Survival Initiative (MANSI). In this way, they will participate in driving large-scale impact, while honing their leadership, communication, marketing, event planning, and community-engagement skills.
In addition, AIF Youth Ambassadors can work towards securing the Presidential Volunteer Service Award to recognize their outstanding volunteership and the impact they have triggered.
Applications are currently open for our 2024 YAP!
Length of Program: November 1, 2023 - July 1, 2024
