Established as a nonprofit, 501(c)3 organization in 2016, Ambassadors, Inc. offers mentoring to homeless and at-risk youth, ages 13 to 18, and seeks to help prepare youth for transition into adulthood.

Ambassadors strives to empower homeless and at-risk youth groups to see beyond their past challenges and current situations. Statistics reveal the following:

  • One-third of the homeless people in the US population are children, which includes children in the foster care system.

  • Each year, over 20,000 children age out of foster care. This group is most likely to be homeless, go to prison, or become young parents.

We present real-life concepts in a fun environment and collaborate with a diverse group of professionals and entrepreneurs to present a curriculum which deals with the following:


  • Goal setting and career planning

  • Financial planning

  • Self-image and character development

  • Conflict and stress management

  • Citizenship and much more....


We seek to prepare participants to consciously think of how they perceive themselves and the image they wish to portray. The goal is to use this concept to help guide their decision making processes as they transition into adult roles and assume adult responsibilities.  Through our curriculum, we ask the questions such as: What is it that you want to represent? How do you see yourself? Where do you see yourself 10 or 20 years from now?  We encourage participants to keep these questions in mind as they make daily decisions that may impact their long term goals.
