OUR FELLOWSHIP PROGRAM

BE THE CHANGE AMERICA NEEDS

ABOUT THE AMBASSADOR PROGRAM

The Move for America Ambassador Program is a paid, immersive learning experience for emerging leaders to move across America's cultural, political, and geographic fault lines to live, learn, and serve. Ambassadors will serve in community-based organizations, build relationships, and learn about their host town. They will participate in professional development sessions, peer mentorship, and complete a capstone project designed to build the skills and habits to bridge divides through youth engagement.
