The Ambassadors of Compassion (AOC) Leadership Program is an interactive journey that brings together the wisdom and expertise learned by leaders and influencers to equip youth with resiliency and the personal leadership skills to navigate and succeed through life's inevitable challenges. It is designed to teach the critical life principles that every person should know and incorporate into their life in order to reach their full potential.

Ambassadors of Compassion envisions millions of youth who are productive, self-sufficient, and compassionate citizens taking responsibility for their own lives while at the same time serving the needs of their community and world. The Ambassadors of Compassion journey helps youth define who they are, where they belong, and where they are going in life. It helps them discover their life's purpose along with providing them with a sense of hope and destiny through serving the needs of others.
