Who we are Ambassador Community An inclusive, brave network The Ambassador Community is a unique network of young women with one thing in common - every member has been a part of The Girls’ Network programme. This community exists to support the young women in our network, without timescales or caveats - they can access this community as and when they need it. As the community grows, we’re welcoming young women back to the network to empower the next generation of mentees, as they themselves train to become a mentor to a girl in their community. Are you an ambassador at The Girls’ Network? Or, have you taken part in the mentoring programme but aren't currently receiving our newsletter? Drop your Community Lead, Grace, an email! Why we exist Our work and research tells us that young women and girls benefit from continued support and access to opportunities once their initial mentoring journey has concluded. We’ve talked to our mentees and ambassadors to learn more about the challenges that they directly face. This community is a brave, empowering space that can help them to manage or overcome these challenges as they take their next steps into education, the working world and beyond. What are some of the key issues that ambassadors are facing? Access to relevant work experience Having their voices heard Mental ill health Financial barriers Access to a relatable network This community seeks to tackle these issues, and beyond by: Providing an ongoing network of relatable role models Raising the voices of, and providing a platform for, ambassadors and their stories Connecting young women to workshops, events and development opportunities Meet Ishrat (ambassador since 2018) Meet Aliyah (ambassador since 2016) Meet Dilara (ambassador since 2016) The Ambassador Community is an inclusive network that is shaping our impact and the world around us, so that every young woman can have an unlimited future of their choice.
