Lead the Change!

Raising the Roof’s National Youth Ambassador program provides training, mentorship and support to youth across the county. Through youth-led initiatives, the ambassadors will educate their communities on the issues of homelessness, fundraise and advocate for change.

Through the National Youth Ambassador program, participants from ages 15-30 will learn important skills including: communication skills, event management, fundraising, storytelling, marketing, project management, public speaking and much more.

There is a great opportunity for personal growth for the youth participants. The youth will gain hands-on experience planning and executing events and presentations in their local community. The youth will gain confidence through the knowledge, coaching and support they will receive.

There will be lasting impact as the participants take the entrepreneurship, leadership, advocacy and other skills they learn through the Youth Ambassador program and apply them to other initiatives in their community and their future employment.
