About Our Ambassadors

The Ambassadors are a group of dedicated young individuals between the ages of 16 and 18 years, all of whom call Tauranga and/or Western Bay of Plenty home. They each bring unique perspectives, skills and knowledge to the group, and have all shown their interest and passion for contributing to their community as well as making the world a better place. As a team, these young people truly are a working example of the project's focus, WE ARE STRONGER TOGEHER.
