Are you a young individual aged between 14 and 18 years old, brimming with love and passion for the ocean and its marine wonders? Do you envision yourself as a change maker, determined to secure a healthier planet and a sustainable future? If so, we invite you to become part of Ocean Youth, an inspiring movement focused on protecting our precious oceans.
The Ocean Youth Ambassador Program is designed for 20 inspired and inspiring young individuals who are eager to create positive changes in our marine environment. As an Ocean Youth Ambassador, you will be introduced to the enchanting underwater world through SEA LIFE aquaria and immersive nature-based activities. Moreover, you will be provided with the essential tools and knowledge needed to make a real difference for the conservation of our oceans.
During this capacity building program, you will learn from experts how to leverage social media to amplify your voice, campaign effectively to protect marine habitats and species, and master the art of fundraising to support causes dear to your heart. Our workshops will cover various media communication techniques, including video, audio, writing, and blogging, empowering you to share your stories and experiences with the world.
This initiative aims to nurture and develop your leadership skills, empowering you to become change makers in your communities. It provides a platform to engage with critical environmental issues threatening our planet’s future, enabling you to voice your concerns and advocate for positive changes to preserve our oceans. The program also offers an incredible opportunity to connect with like-minded individuals who share your vision for a more sustainable future.
To apply, we encourage you to showcase your passion for the ocean in any creative form you prefer. You can submit videos (up to 3 minutes), stories, essays, interviews (real or fictional), songs, or art—whatever medium best reflects your love for the ocean and your dedication to driving positive change. Please email your entries to firstname.lastname@example.org or send them to Ocean Youth c/o SEA LIFE Trust, 1 – 5 Wheat Rd, Darling Harbour, 2000 by 5 pm on 21st February. We will promptly notify successful applicants for an interview by Friday, 28th February.
