Testimonials

“My experience as an ambassador has been astounding; it has helped me learn things about myself and new skills. I really like being able to travel and talk to different individuals about the program.”—Nicole Dyer

“It’s rewarding to meet other volunteers at booths in events. I also like having the opportunity to try new things.”— Delphine Chagnon

“Thanks to the many young speakers who led the workshops, I also learned that the most ambitious leaders are youth who refuse to be complacent. They get involved, are there for their communities, challenge the status quo and engage with the world, just like the youth engaged with Chantiers jeunesse.”— Natasha
