The Marketnext Global Youth Ambassador Program offers a unique opportunity for a diverse group of young people from across the globe to travel, learn about another culture, develop their leadership skills, and become empowered to make positive changes in their communities. Through this program, Marketnext and our program partners aim to empower youth to become integral leaders and decision-makers in their communities and to gain a clear understanding that the power to impact positive change in their communities they live. The guiding goal of the MGYAP Program is to build individual and collective leadership, critical and analytic problem-solving, and teamwork for youth to see themselves as agents of change and to become actively involved in community service and civic life.
The Youth Ambassador Program (MGYAP) is meant to be an introduction to entrepreneur life for the youth aged (18-25) , while also helping them to uncover their life goals and purpose. The goal is not to make everyone into an entrepreneur, but to show youth how entrepreneurship can fit in with different career and educational paths. Ultimately, we want to help youth to make the most informed decisions possible about their futures.
Engaging with the themes of Purpose, Passion, Impact, Problem & Solution and Growth and incorporating aspects of mindfulness, decisionmaking, wellbeing and team-building participants built a community as their develop their individual skills.
