Last week, dozens of Savannah Youth Ambassadors participated in a community project; painting two homes in need of repair.
The Ambassadors put a fresh coat of paint on homes located at 921 Googe St. in Carver Village and 1030 W. 39th St. in Cuyler Brownville.
Neel Patel became an Ambassador just one month ago. “This is the best summer program I’ve ever been a part of,” Patel said. “This program is about teaching me to be a leader, to give back to the community and work on group projects with other students.”
The Savannah Youth Ambassadors Program is made up of local high school students. The program fosters youth leadership and civic engagement through City-sponsoretraining, cultural exploration opportunities, and Make a Difference community impact projects.
