Let us be your classroom

Hear from our teachers how we can make a difference in your students' lives.

It's like no classroom you've ever been in... and no field trip you've ever taken.

As a teacher, your experience with Ambassador Leaders opens the world of possibilities to you and your students. With access to prestigious universities, influential leaders, industry experts, and skill-building workshops, teachers are inspired to teach at a whole new level—while helping students achieve their full potential.

Meet our teacher leaders, and explore how you can get involved as an educator.

It is a wonderful opportunity for educators to experience working with youth of diverse backgrounds, cultures and exercise leadership, all while in a unique setting.

Recognize your student leaders and help them take their leadership to the next level by nominating them for an Ambassador Leadership Summit. Based on your nomination, your students will receive a personal invitation to the Summit, or you may request invitations to be mailed to your school.


Work with a group of outstanding student leaders from across the United States and around the world at an Ambassador Leadership Summit and facilitate student learning. We provide curriculum and training and take care of every detail, so you can do what you do best - teach and inspire future leaders.

Travel with your students

We partner with many schools that have groups of students travel to the Summit each year to represent their school and their countries. An educator accompanying their students may participate free of charge. It’s our way to say thank you for helping us provide the diverse experiences that our programs are so well known for.

Great opportunity to work with a diverse group, guide others through life impacting experiences, make new friends, model passion in life and learning, and enjoy personal growth.
