THE AMBASSADORS PROGRAM
Imagine an emerging group of student leaders who are exemplary role models, promising visionaries, and community builders. Student leaders who passionately believe that change is possible and that it starts with them. The Center for Tomorrow's Leaders Ambassadors program empowers Hawaii's next generation of leaders to do just that.
The CTL Ambassadors program offers a leadership development course for diverse leaders. Students are individually nominated by administrators and teachers. The framework is research-based, comprehensive, and based on core ethical values.
