The EDGE’s Youth Ambassadors Care (YAC) leadership program was founded in 2013 with the goal of imparting leadership skills via a curated curriculum to motivate, teach and inspire middle and high school students to become leaders and ambassadors within their surrounding community, school and wherever they may go in the future. The goal of the YAC is to make learning leadership skills easy, applicable, but most of all FUN! What makes our program unique is that our curriculum also promotes social responsibility and humanitarianism among the students via active learning methods of open discussions on various social causes that are important to them and hands-on community service opportunities.

 We are currently accepting students to join our program that is restarting the fourth Saturday in January. All of our leadership meetings take place on Saturdays at various meeting locations throughout the South Miami area.

I have been a part of the amazing Youth Ambassadors Care Leadership Program for about 6 years. Being a part of the YAC has imparted me to a greater sense of leadership and humanitarism in wanting to be more involved in my community and various volunteering opportunities. The YAC has contributed to my personal development in being a leader that now takes action.
