The Youth Leadership Council has merged with the Youth Ambassadors for the 2018-2019 school year!  As Youth Ambassadors, students will have an opportunity to serve on various committees that encompass the roles and work of both groups. They are the faces and voices of the organization, representing the diversity of the 800 Georgia high school students of 21st Century Leaders each year.

21CL Youth Ambassadors will be responsible for 21CL speaking engagements at leadership training events and fundraising events, organizing community service projects and creating meaningful opportunities to engage more 21st Century Leaders. The Youth Ambassadors are 21CL advocates to empower other high school students across the state to join 21st Century Leaders and to connect 21CL students, volunteers, alumni and supporters for positive impact.

Students collaborate to generate and produce multimedia content for 21CL’s social and online platforms, post live during our school-year events and leadership summits, create videos for our new online learning system Leadership Connect, attend exclusive workshops, and editorialize the end-of-the-year senior publication, Let Youth Voices Be Heard.
