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 newcomers residing in Cleveland. Having received services from UNICEF during transition to the USA, students are inspired to be the ambassadors for new voices of racial equity and inclusion in Cleveland and its neighboring communities.

We are hoping to raise funds to take 15 students to Washington, D.C. to the UNICEF Student Summit where they will learn leadership, advocacy, community building, and activating the community to move towards racial equity and inclusion of children and youth.

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