YAB's mission is to empower the youth of Lake County to become leaders and advocates for their community and peers. The Young Ambassadors lead by example and work together throughout Lake County to improve our community.
Young Ambassadors are middle and high school students who serve as a forum to effectively deal with issues that especially impact youth in Lake County. Young Ambassadors work in partnership with our office to develop programs on topics like alcohol prevention, cyber-bullying, teen dating violence prevention, and will provide insight on efforts to engage the young people of Lake County. By bringing awareness to their schools and communities, they will be a voice on issues and trends that affect them and their peers. This is an opportunity for students to promote good citizenship, serve their community, and be a leading voice for change.
