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 2017-2018 Ambassador.

We accept two classes of Ambassadors every year - one submission session runs October-December and our second session takes place February-March. We accept 15 participants to each class, who are encouraged to continue as Senior Ambassadors thereafter.

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 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.
