This month, the City of Los Angeles Human Relations Commission (CityHRC) is rolling out their 2013-2014 Youth Ambassador Initiative. Please find attached a program description, application, and a timeline for your reference.
The Youth Ambassador Initiative serves as a nexus and ultimately connects youth in Los Angeles to their local government in ways never seen before. The YA program is an 8 month commitment that culminates in a wonderful all-inclusive trip/tour of our Nations Capitol, Washington D.C. The YA Initiative might also qualify for College Credit for some students that are anticipating pursuing undergraduate studies and also serves as an excellent resource for youth looking at building on their High School extra curricular/civic portfolios. The City HRC will be accepting applications until March 15th, no later than 5pm. The criteria for candidates is that they must be youth in grades 9-11, and City of LA residents in order to be eligible for the program and scholarship opportunity. If you have further questions, please direct them via telephone to Sheldon Cruz at 213-308-7609 or by email at Sheldon.Cruz@lacity.org.
