Developing leaders. Implementing programs. Empowering youth.
The perfect trifecta for youth substance use prevention is the Youth Ambassador program, powered by ACT Missouri. Each year, the strongest young advocates in Missouri high schools are invited to champion a cause that affects every community.
With so many risks available to students every day, and the list of consequences ever-expanding, communities across Missouri need strong, talented youth to recognize the problems and spearhead change in new, innovative methods.
Since 2011 Youth Ambassadors have served as a collective voice – representing the nearly 800,000 youth of the ShowMe State – and provide solutions to change the discussion on youth substance use in local communities.
The MYAA Youth Ambassador program services hundreds of youth – and they depend on the generosity of individuals like you.
