DUSA’s Youth Ambassador Program was established to promote leadership and advance community development  through relational organizing – the single most effective way to make direct contact with constituents by way of  mobilizing personal contacts within a volunteer’s network. Through our extensive network of partners and  resources, we provide opportunities for local New York City youth to collectively generate solutions to the most  pressing social issues while fostering changemakers in our community. We call these leaders “DUSA  Ambassadors”.  DUSA’s Ambassador program acts as a mutually beneficial relationship, serving as both a reliable resource of  information and opportunity and a source of empowerment for city youth. We leverage New York City’s youngest  and brightest voices to advocate for their local communities, thereby helping DUSA achieve its mission of giving  our immigrant and underrepresented communities a voice through civic, social, and economic engagement.

Goals and Objectives

Objectives  DUSA Ambassadors will work with our team of industry experts to encourage voter registration among qualified  New York City residents in their immediate local communities and act as trusted sources of information in their  respective districts. Interns will conduct in-person field work in our communities using state of the art technology  such as THE EMPOWER APP and our online voter registration tool with the goal of registering 20 people over a  period of 6 weeks.  Compensation  The expectation for every intern is to gain valuable, industry experience while fulfilling the objectives of their role  as a DUSA Ambassador. Students will establish valuable relationships with nonprofit professionals and community  leaders, while gaining full support from a well trusted nonprofit organization trusted by thousands across the city of  New York. To supplement this unique experience, a stipend of $250 will be granted to ambassadors who  successfully complete the requirements of the program.
