Youth Ambassadors

The Youth Ambassador program, based in Dallas, TX, engages high schools students to think globally and act locally. They research Aga Khan Foundation projects, and find ways to implement similar programs in their local communities. They also raise awareness of AKF’s work to address the root causes of poverty and improve the quality of life for all through arts and innovation competitions and developing educational presentations.

National Youth Art Competition

Since 2012, the Dallas Youth Ambassadors have hosted an arts competition for local high school students. This year, we are pleased to expand that competition nationwide!

Stay tuned for more details, the competition will kick off this fall!
