the project

Cleveland Youth Ambassadors for Peace and Change is a group of Cleveland Metropolitan School District (CMSD) students inspired by Advocates for Peace and Change grassroots work in the community with international students, refugees, and newcommers resideing in Cleveland. Having received services from UNICEF during transition to USA, students are inspirerd to be the embassadors for new voices of racial equity and inclusion in Clevelad and its neighboring communities.

We are hoping to raise funds to take 11 students to Washington, D.C. to the UNICEF Student Summit where they will learn leadership, advocacy, community buliding, and activating community to move towards racial equity and inclusion of children and youth.

Exposing youth to diplomcy and advocacy in Washington, D.C. during the summitt will enhance their knowlege, leadership skills, and personal growth, which they can use  throughout their lives and will inspire them to work in the community.
