The Youth Ambassador Leadership Conference is a non-partisan, educational experience designed for high school juniors and seniors who attend schools within Kentucky’s Sixth Congressional District. This conference provides a unique opportunity for students to hear directly from Kentucky leaders, while also serving as an ambassador to their school. It is my hope that the program will promote strong alliances between schools and students throughout our diverse 19 county district.

The program will consist of breakout sessions with speakers who serve as top leaders in the Commonwealth covering several important topics. This year’s conference will be held at the University of Kentucky’s Gatton School of Business in Lexington, KY on March 5th. It is my goal that our Youth Ambassadors will return to their schools and communities and share what they learn with their classmates and fellow Kentuckians.

Please find a copy of the application attached. Each applicant should provide basic contact information, a copy of their resume, and a 250-word statement outlining why they wish to be a part of the program. Please have students complete and return the application by January 26, 2022 to my District Office via mail, email, or fax. Participants will be notified of acceptance by email by February 2, 2022.

I encourage you to share this information with the students, teachers and parents at your school, as this is a truly valuable experience for the youth in our district.  If you have any further questions regarding the Youth Ambassador Program or its application process, please do not hesitate to contact McKinzii Todd at my District Office at (859) 219-1366 or
