The NYC Urban Ambassadors' Program Application
ABOUT THE NYC URBAN AMBASSADORS PROGRAM
For many historically under-served young men in New York City, access to leadership training and mentorship is not guaranteed. In 2012, NYC Urban Ambassadors (NYC UA) was founded to provide young men with purpose, leadership, and distinction. UA is currently affiliated with over 40 public high schools across the city and is dedicated to cultivating a brotherhood that serves students throughout their journey from high school to college.

In partnership with caregivers, schools, community-based organizations, and a range of top universities and academic institutions, each year a cohort of students embarks on a two-and-a-half-year program that encompasses: academic support; culturally-relevant experiences; college enrichment; socio-emotional development; character and leadership building; gender-based bonding; and positive adult role-modeling and mentoring.

NYC UA facilitators design experiences that promote positive interactions and brotherly support so that young men are nurtured in an environment that primes them for success in college and career. These experiences include: regular weekly sessions, leadership opportunities, and SAT Prep.

Young men in the program take the journey to excellence via five pillars that are designed to promote confidence and achievement as they strive to reach their goals.

The pillars are:

College Readiness
SAT Prep and college readiness experiences are designed to increase the number of Ambassadors attending selective and highly selective colleges.

Leadership
Ambassadors engage in work that supports their interest and passions as they look for ways to make contributions to community.

Introspection of Self
Ambassadors create presentations and artifacts that speak to their understanding of themselves as socio-historical beings who are here to make a difference.

Mastery Learning
Ambassadors demonstrate mastery of skills and learning tools that allow them to have agency over their lives and the world they live in.

Brotherhood
The bond between the brothers starts early and ambassadors support each other during the program. Future ambassadors have the opportunity to mentor and become program facilitators. College Readiness; Leadership; Introspection; Mastery Learning; and Brotherhood (CLIMB). These pillars provide a foundation for goal-setting and academic and personal achievement.

The application is open to young men in grade ten who are attending NYCDOE public schools.
