Young Champion Ambassador Program

The Young Champion Ambassador program is a wonderful youth leadership program available to all high school students in our region.

YCA comes to life through an online essay competition to select two student representatives per high school to participate in a one of a kind youth leadership curriculum that concludes with an international trip to the origins of the Olympic and Paralympic movement.

YCA participants venture into a journey of personal growth as they master skills such as design thinking, public speaking, networking, branding, and more. Participants also learn all about the Olympic and Paralympic movement.

Applications for the 2020 class are currently open, and I encourage students to learn more about this program by visiting www.ycaimpact.com.
