Youth Ambassadors

Our Youth Ambassador Program provides an exciting opportunity for children/teens with arthritis.  Youth Ambassadors are young people ages 10-17 who share their stories of life with arthritis and engage in advocacy activities to help raise awareness of the disease. Youth Ambassadors represent the nearly 300,00 kids living with JA, including 18,400 children in New York, by putting a face on the disease and making the case that more needs to be done for kids with JA.

We are looking for Youth Ambassadors who:

    • Can share their personal story, in writing and in front of groups, at programs, events, and meetings with elected officials
    • Are enthusiastic and passionate about finding a cure
    • Are interested in meeting with peers and receiving individual/group training
