Join our Young Ambassadors Team

Three years ago Daytrippers created the Young Ambassadors Project to highlight the contributions made by children and young people engaging with the charity.

We are planning to elevate the project by offering two young people an opportunity to represent the charity, have a meaningful voice and contribute to decision making. The Young Ambassadors will play a key role in quality assuring and assessing inclusion within our programmes.

Please share this opportunity with young people within your network and help us find the perfect candidates!
