2020-2021 Junior Ambassador Information and Application
Junior Ambassadors (JA) is a youth leadership program tailored to assist high school juniors in identifying personal leadership potential through exposure to economic development opportunities, government awareness, environmental stewardship and civic engagement through community service.
By connecting with local business leaders, lawmakers, governmental agencies and the exploration of local industry, the JA program builds healthy adult relationships, challenges thinking, and promotes charitable giving by giving participants the opportunity to experience the value of community development hands on. Students broaden their understanding of state government by traveling to Montgomery each spring to tour the capitol, meet with lawmakers, and watch their government in action. Junior Ambassadors connect with local business leaders, explore dynamic companies, practice real-life problem solving, and learn the value of community involvement. Since 1998, more than 300 students have completed the program.
