As an Ambassador Club member teens have a city-wide support network that helps them avoid the pit falls that lead to:
Stunted social skills
Loss of ambition & self-esteem
Submission to negative peer pressure
Experimenting with alcohol, tobacco and drugs
Dropping out of school
A lack of preparedness for college
A lack of preparedness to join the workforce
Each year drug free youth ( DFYID ) in schools across Detroit select club leadership to lead school activities and participate in the planning of a range of city-wide enrichment programs that promote “the values of the Ambassador”.
Club activities include a range a leadership workshops and field trips designed to broaden each member’s horizon and support personal improvement goals that have identified alone, and a goal they have mutually agreed to work on together with their parent, guardian or mentor. Central to accomplishing the goal is participation in “Power of Choice” programming.
Whether it is a visit to the White House, State Capital, halls of higher learning, or to the offices of “captains of commerce & industry”; Ambassador Club members share a unique and exciting experience which unifies them in their pursuit of higher education and directs them toward a successful future.
