The purpose of the Ambassador program is to foster learning and civic engagement through community service projects initiated, developed, and managed by the Young Scholars themselves. As part of the program, all the members work closely with an advisor, Ambassadors will receive comprehensive training designed to provide them with the skills to succeed in current and future endeavors.  He was inspired and continues to lead the CRC project to raise public awareness of the recycling options including eWaste recycling through different campaign activities and help communities & charities with computer refurbishing work.
