“I want to make a difference in the world.”
How many times have you heard that from someone?
Did they even know how?
So many of us want to impact the world around us in a positive light, but where do we start?
The task almost seems too overwhelming to start.
The world is a wide and wonderful place full of diversity and possibilities. Along with that, there is poverty, child slavery, genocide, climate changes, and a plethora of other nasties that we can’t change—or can we?
For so many of us and our children, we have the book knowledge and the desire, but no practical experience in making a difference in the world around us.
This is where a program like O(prah) Ambassadors comes in.
Partnered with Free the Children since 2007, O Ambassadors gives kids the tools kids need so they can “inspire young people to become active, compassionate, and knowledgeable global citizens to create lasting change in the world.”
The program can be established by the educators and incorporated into the curriculum or set up as an extra-curricular activity (club) by and educator and/or parent.
The regions of the world that are for clubs to select and study are Latin America, East Africa, West Africa, East Asia, and South Asia. Each group will work with an O Ambassador Youth Counselor during the year to help establish goals and to provide mentorship, guidance, and support.
