IYF & McDonald's selected 20 young people (ages 16-24) from around the United States to participate in the Youth Opportunity (YO) Ambassadors program from September 2021 - January 2022. We are excited to announce the selection of Javen C., a JAG student from Wickenburg High School, as one of the new participants of the national YO program.
The Youth Ambassadors initiative aims to equip young people with skills and opportunities to be successful leaders, effective communicators and serve as communications liaisons between McDonald’s and the public. Participation includes 3-4 monthly meetings with a cohort of peers, national networking opportunities, career development support, a cash stipend and the opportunity to participate in the Passport to Success program.
Javen will be featured in an upcoming News Desk episode! Be sure to check back as we follow Javen on this exciting new journey.
