Caroline, Young Nonprofit Fellow '24

In my time at Youth Ambassadors of Service, I have grown incredibly as a youth leader, community activist, and agent of service. Every learning opportunity facilitated by our dedicated and loving mentors was fulfilling to not only my drive to learn and grow on a professional level but also my love for volunteer work and sharing joy and resources with underserved communities. I am so grateful for discovering the life-changing work of YAS and would 10/10 recommend it to any motivated high school students looking to make a difference through hands-on initiatives!

READY TO PUT YOUR MONEY WHERE YOUR MOUTH IS? 

As a small nonprofit run by youth for other youth, we operate on a modest budget. The fiscal year 2024 brought us our first fundraising campaign with a goal of $50,000 to raise by June 30, 2024.
