Compassion Ambassadors serve as members of our Community Connection Volunteer Program. Compassion Ambassadors provide acts of kindness to those we serve through all NEXT Steps Youth Entrepreneur Programs and Initiatives. Compassion Ambassadors can be students (K-12), young adults (16-24), families (ages 3+), schools, colleges and universities, community organizations, and businesses that wish to work on youth-driven missions grounded in:

  • Civic Leadership
  • Health & Wellness
  • Agricultural Technologies & Urban Design
  • STEM++ Career Pathways (CTAE)
  • Social Entrepreneurship
  • Environmental Engineering, Exploration & Stewardship

Our Full Circle Arts & Technology (FCAT) Initiatives

NEXT Steps created the Full Circle Arts & Technology (FCAT) Initiatives to teach students how to create, measure and value the marketable STEM++ skills they gain through our programs. Compassion Ambassords help coordinate, manage and report results of our activities and maximize our resources efficiently.
