Junior Ambassador Program
The Junior Ambassador program is a free environmental education and leadership program for high school students offered by Miami Waterkeeper. This program teaches students about environmental issues in South Florida, the basics to civic engagement and environmental advocacy, and also provides great service learning experiences. Students have the opportunity to develop and strengthen their leadership, communication, advocacy, and management skills in a near-peer mentoring environment.
In order to apply to the Junior Ambassador program, applicants must identify a Teacher-Sponsor at their school. The Teacher-Sponsor should be supportive of the applicant's experience in the Junior Ambassador program. Ideally, the Teacher-Sponsor will help the student to facilitate a presentation to an after-school club, another class, or peers upon their completion of the program.
