Young Ambassadors Academy

A group of 50 Ontario Middle School students attended the two-week long Young Ambassadors Academy to graduate as OMS Ambassadors. The Academy, held at Boise State University, featured workshops, guest speakers, and team-building exercises. The training focused on things such as goal-setting, conflict resolution, and Covey's Seven Habits of Highly Effective Teenagers.

OMS staff members Xochitl Fuhrimas-Ebert and Suzie Douglas-Sap coordinated the Academy, which culminated in a graduation ceremony at the Four Rivers Cultural Center.

About a dozen students addressed the Ontario School Board of Directors at the September board meeting - something they admit they would never have been able to do before attending the Young Ambassadors Academy.
