Ambassador Program

At Horizons, we aren’t just going to be talking about ways to serve young adults—we’re going to hear directly from them.  

In 2023, JFF launched our first-ever Horizons Ambassador Program to engage young adults who represent learners and early career talent in the Horizons experience. Ambassadors served in an advisory role to integrate and uplift the voices of early talent. Ambassadors represented young adults ages 16-26 from eight states across the United States with expertise in production, early childhood education, policy and advocacy, technology, neuroscience, and psychology. 

In 2024, we’re reintroducing the Horizons Ambassador Program and welcoming 10 applicants to join us in curating our program, building experiences for young people, and sharing their personal experiences to further our conversations and work. At least one ambassador will return from our 2023 program to use their experience to influence how we make Horizons more inclusive of the worker, learner, and early career talent voice.  

The role of Ambassadors include:
  • Serving on an advisory council before and after Horizons to provide insight on how to better serve early talent at Horizons events 
  • Learning how to maximize their LinkedIn profile with one-on-one assistance
  • Attending and speaking on sessions of interests 
  • Networking and sharing the Horizons experience from the early talent perspective
  • Engaging in onsite roles that are catered to their career goals and interests
