Get Ready For Work

As a Babbasa Youth Ambassador, you’ll be given the tools to pitch your talent to the right people, at the right time, all while making a positive impact in your community!

CITY OF change

Youth Ambassadors were given the challenge of launching a new campaign in October 2020, City Of Change: Youth Challenge, in response to Babbasa’s #BridgeToEquality report. The team of nine young leaders asked 30 businesses to create a career opportunity for one young person from a lower socio-economic or minority background in the next 12 months.
