Want to change the world?

Canadian charity seeks young adults, aged 16 to 25, for volunteer ambassador program

Youth ambassador program

MARKHAM, Ont. — A worldwide search has begun to find volunteer Global Youth Ambassadors, young adults who are passionate about making a positive difference for children and youth around the world, and Canada is among the first countries to be offered this exciting opportunity.

Christian Children’s Fund of Canada (CCFC) is accepting applications, and along with a chance to travel, ambassadors will have opportunities for unique learning and leadership experiences. They will even see their innovative ideas put into action. This program will give youth a way to make a tangible, positive impact on the world.

“We will be helping young people hone their skills and kick-start their careers by addressing global development problems together with other youth. They will also get help with resumé-building, online courses and be paired with mentors who can help them get on the way to achieving their dreams,” explains Niko Moniz, global youth ambassador program coordinator at CCFC. “There is potential to travel, meet with youth from around the world and lead real change in communities.”

CCFC is searching for six to eight ambassadors, aged 16 to 25 from Canada, to join a global group of people who have a heart for helping children and young people around the world. Other criteria includes having a passion for global issues and local solutions, and past experience participating in leadership activities. CCFC welcomes applicants of all faith backgrounds.

“If you are looking for a unique adventure, and you fit the Global Youth Ambassador criteria, we want to hear from you,” Moniz adds.

For an application, please email nmoniz@ccfcanada.ca.
