Policies and Responsibilities: Change Institute Ambassadors are an exclusive group of youth representing the project and the parent company, Social Designs. In an effort to make the institute enjoyable, beneficial, and successful, the following guidelines are in place:
1. Ambassador Seminars: Ambassadors are required to attend all orientation pre-departure sessions. The orientation sessions will be held in person, Google Hangout, and conference call.
2. Weekly Blogs & Vlogs: Youth will be required to complete a monthly blog or vlog to document their progress in the institute. This documentation is a great way for the youth to communicate with the family, friends, and community of their learning and development. A total of four blogs or vlogs will be required before departure and four while abroad. Updates will be posted on our Facebook, blog pages, and Twitter. It is the students’ responsibility to stay current on the articles, posts, books, etc. pertaining to seminar topics and trends in social change and social justice. We will provide suggested articles and books.
3. Projects & Presentations: Youth of the Change Institute will complete an environmental sustainability project while abroad. All projects will serve an immediate need and address long-term sustainability. The 2020 project will focus on Food Systems & Justice.
