Young Ambassadors Leadership Program


The Shrine of Remembrance Young Ambassador program provides an opportunity for young people currently in year 8 and 9 to participate in programs and commemorative events at the Shrine.

The Young Ambassadors key role is to act as leaders and representatives of future generations at the Shrine. They encourage their peers and other young people in their communities to gain a greater understanding of the importance of remembering and honouring Australia’s service community and military history. Young Ambassadors are appointed for a twelve month period from December each year.

Shrine Young Ambassadors are passionate and through their association with the Shrine are provided with opportunities to optimise and accommodate their individual strengths with hands-on learning opportunities. This includes meeting and working alongside Shrine professional staff and Volunteers.

Benefits enjoyed by Shrine Young Ambassadors include:

  • Learning about and participating in commemorative services
  • Building leadership through personal projects connecting the Shrine to visitors and community
  • Developing self-confidence and purpose
  • Making new friends and working with diverse groups
  • Attending programs at the Australian War Memorial in Canberra
