AOC Journey

Criterion for Selecting Participants

The criterion for selecting youth to participate in the Ambassadors of Compassion Journey is their willingness to build their lives and communities. These youth will be challenged to make a difference in the lives of others around them. At the same time they will be taking positive steps toward personal growth and accountability and incorporating into their lives the principles necessary to help them reach their goals and dreams and to live a fulfilled life. The Ambassadors of Compassion Journey is designed to benefit youth from all walks of life. By completing the Journey students will gain personal leadership skills to enhance their life, greater confidence in their own strengths and abilities, and a new sense of purpose and belonging that will help them see new possibilities of how they can reach their goals and dreams while also making a difference in the world around them.
