Meet OJS’ Student Leaders
Youth Leadership Ambassadors are highly driven students within Operation Jump Start, who have a strong urge to give back to the community and lead by example. These students are motivated by personal growth, challenge, and global change. They participate in a wide range of opportunities that enable them to share their voice in the community as young advocates, become a helping hand through volunteer work, and assist in making OJS events possible. Additionally, Youth Leadership Ambassadors work in a collaborative setting and set the tone for all Operation Jump Start students.
