Potential ambassadors gather in Merritt
The British Columbia Ambassador Program is an annual event that takes place in Merritt, B.C., in August. This program is open to any young man or woman age 17 to 23, who has previously held an Ambassador/Royal title in British Columbia. Each year, three members are chosen to represent the youth of our province. As part of their duties, they travel throughout the province promoting the program's mandate of education, motivation, and self-esteem.
This will be the 12th year for the program, which was started and has been organized since by founder Mike Hume.
The focus of the program is to nurture future leaders, promote and assist with post-secondary education and forge links of friendship throughout B.C.
The British Columbia Ambassador Program offers bursaries to assist the youth in pursuing their dreams and fulfilling their ambitions. Scholarships and Bursaries are awarded to the British Columbia Ambassador Program candidates each year.
All candidates in the British Columbia Ambassador Program (regardless of whether or not they earn a position on the team) may apply for scholarships provided by the various post-secondary sponsors.
