A high school program meant to give politically-minded scholars a taste of City Hall will begin this fall.
Councilman Paul Vallone will announce the kickoff of his Ambassador Program at a press conference Friday.
The future leaders will organize food collections and cleanups, work with city agencies, take trips to City Hall and even draft a bill to be introduced in the City Council.
“Education is important in classrooms, but it shouldn’t stop there,” Vallone said.
“Providing this opportunity that gives each student every possibility of future success is the least we can do for our children.”
The program will begin this September and last until June.
Students are chosen by a principal, guidance counselor or teacher.
