This documentary made as a part of the Youth Ambassadors Program.

Youth Ambassadors is an innovative collaboration of community partners in the Kansas City metropolitan area who, in 2010, joined forces to implement a state-of-the art, not-for-profit work program for under-served youth.

Youth Ambassadors believes that youth need to take ownership of their communities – the good, the bad, the ugly and the beautiful – before effective change can occur. To this end, we hire our ambassadors to explore their communities through digital photography, documentary production, writing, art, historical references and intimate interviews. In the process, our ambassadors explore themselves, their role in the community and the issues about which they feel most passionate.

Our Youth Ambassadors are our future community leaders. We work to empower them.
