I’ve been involved for three years and I think within those three years I’ve grown more than probably the rest combined.”
The Human Relations’ Ambassadors Program (HRAP) creates a supportive environment for students to attain skills and knowledge so they may reach out to diverse communities of Orange County as part of a larger human relations and social justice movement.
Since I graduated from the Human Relations Ambassadors Program, its value has continued to grow clearer. The lasting lessons I learned about communication, multiculturalism, nonviolence and leadership form a central part of my world view and work with diverse communities.“
The Human Relations’ Ambassadors Program is a year long internship designed to provide advanced human relations training to a diverse group of Orange County youth who are members of their school’s BRIDGES Program. Students meet monthly to discuss human relations issues, learn new activities and develop workshop and community presentations. HRAP furthers the mission of OC Human Relations by serving as youth representatives of the agency at community events as participants, presenters and facilitators.
Each year approximately 25 students graduate from the program after meeting project and attendance requirements.
