What is a BYLP Student Ambassador?

BYLP Student Ambassadors are students who are well-respected, successful academically, and demonstrate leadership characteristics within the school setting.  They are a group of students who are given support in the development of leadership, organization, communication, public speaking, and problem solving skills as they serve to combat the negative stereotypes often used to describe Black students.
