Young Ambassadors

2023 Young Ambassador Programme Launches

Travel to Downpatrick from America and Canada for the first two weeks of June 2023. The aim of the Young Ambassador Program is to establish a network of informed and influential individuals throughout North America who can actively represent the northern part of Ireland throughout their lives. Northern Ireland provides an incredibly diverse platform to learn about many social and cultural aspects of contemporary and historical life in Ireland as well as a developing model for community reconciliation which is relevant to many cities in North America. Young Ambassadors will develop a meaningful and on-going relationship with their sponsors, Chapters of the Friends of Saint Patrick, the Saint Patrick Centre and organizations linked to the Program. We are delighted to welcome applicants from the Ancient Order of Hibernians in America this year.
