The Youth Ambassador Program began in 2001 to provide job experience to high school students through participation at special events held by non-profit and for-profit organizations in the City of Pasadena. The Program provides opportunities for each Ambassador to gain valuable work experience as docents, attendants, event planners, and as spokespersons for the program. A recent poll asked Ambassadors what they liked about the program. These are a few of their responses:
“I have learned how to work with others”
“Exposure to new opportunities”
“Helping the community”
“Meeting new people”
“Networking with other youth groups and organizations“
