The Youth Ambassadors Program brings together high school students and adult mentors from across the Western Hemisphere in 3-week summer programs to promote mutual understanding, increase leadership skills, and prepare youth to make a difference in their communities.
Through in-person or virtual exchange programs, Youth Ambassadors participants engage in experiential learning activities, leadership trainings, civic participation at the community level, volunteering, and mentoring by community, business, and NGO leaders. For more information, see the Youth Ambassadors Program page, where the 30+ countries are listed, or apply for a Summer 2022 program by December 6, 2021.
The SECU Foundation People Helping People 4-year scholarship valued at $10,000 is payable at $1,250 per semester, for a total of eight consecutive semesters. All graduating seniors from a North Carolina public high school who are either an SECU member or are eligible for membership through a parent/guardian and meet the eligibility criteria are considered for the SECU Foundation scholarship.
SECU Foundation does not select the recipients of the scholarship. Each LEA (Local Education Agency) has a Scholarship Selection Committee that selects the recipients of the scholarship for the schools within their district.
