O Ambassadors is a new school-based program for children and youth which seeks to inspire youth to find solutions to global problems. From their website:
"O Ambassadors™ is an exciting new joint project of Oprah’s Angel Network and Free The Children that will inspire young people to become active, compassionate and knowledgeable global citizens.
The program connects young people in North America with people around the world to create lasting change by working toward the UN Millennium Development Goals. Participants address problems such as hunger, poverty and limited access to education."
You can visit the website to apply to start an elementary or high school club, find educator curriculum, select a world region on which to focus, find other O Ambassadors clubs, and play the O Ambassadors Game. The site offers plenty of resources for students and educators and also offers a community action page for those who want to help.
The O Ambassadors project is scheduled to be the topic of discussion Monday, May 26 on The Oprah Winfrey Show.
