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.

Join us at this year’s festival showcasing the artistic and innovative talents of the youth that reflects the theme:

Improving Quality of Life: Ignite yOUR Flame

Saturday April 6, 2024 11am-2pm

At The Sound at Cypress Waters, 3111 Olympus Boulevard, Dallas TX
