One Earth Writing, a 501c3 public charity that connects youth from different races, religions and socioeconomic origins in writing workshops, invites teens between 7th and 12th grades to apply to become a One Earth Writing Summer 2017 Ambassador.
We accept two classes of Ambassadors every year – one submission session runs August 15-October 1, with that class running November through May. Our second session takes place in the summer, a two-week intensive July 10-20, 2017. We accept 15 participants to each class, who are encouraged to continue as Senior Ambassadors thereafter.
Apply to become a Summer 2017 Ambassador! (This program takes place at Christ Church Cranbrook, 470 Church Road, Bloomfield Hills, MI 48304.)
One Earth Writing Ambassadors are teenagers interested in exploring their writing talent through a lens of identity. They are open-minded individuals with a desire to lead who will participate in writing workshops during the summer led by One Earth Writing CEO Lynne Golodner as well as co-facilitate peer workshops when given the opportunity. Ambassadors make new friends, solidify their own identities while learning about peers, bridge misunderstandings and find common ground from which to eliminate bullying and tensions.
The commitment is July 10-20, 2017.
- a one-page letter explaining why you are interested in becoming a One Earth Writing Ambassador, why you will be a unique and interesting fit for this diverse group of student writers, and what you hope to do with the leadership and writing skills you gain with One Earth Writing.

Submission deadline: May 15, 2017.
