Youth Ambassador Program

Dear students,

The Waterloo Commission on Human Rights would like to invite you to participate in our Youth Ambassador Program! It is an experience in which you will get the opportunity to learn more about the community you live in and participate in a host of different activities that promote advocacy, skill building, and networking. This will be achieved through an initial meeting with WCHR staff and/or volunteers to assess the level of interest of the youth. We will follow up with fun-filled activities and events related to topics discussed above.

If interested, please contact JaNeece Hodge.
We look forward to hearing from you.

All the best, JaNeece Hodge
