The City of Dayton Human Relations Council is launching its Young Ambassador Program for the summer of 2019!

This program is designed for high school students who are interested in community engagement and social justice. Ambassadors represent the office of the Human Relations Council within the City of Dayton. Participants will build leadership skills, give back to the community in a creative way and make new friends. Ambassadors will learn to use professional media equipment and get creative with a media project to share their experience with family, friends and the Greater Dayton community.

What are the dates of the program?

Ambassadors will meet twice a week for a course of 8 weeks. Meetings will be held Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 5pm to 7pm. Most meetings will be held at the HRC Office at 371 W Second Street.
