Quesnel Ambassador Leadership Program kicks off

   There are 7 candidates entered this year in Quesnel’s annual Ambassador Leadership Program.
   Coordinator Rose Scott says the program is already well underway as they started in mid-January this year and they have been very busy.
   “Last week we had a really large role in the winter games in that the Ambassadors and candidates managed the holding area, and we saw about 14 hundred athletes come through the holding area, and we provided games for them to do and sports.  We did some Inuit sports and we did some Indigenous crafts,”
   Scott says next up is their main fundraiser.
   ‘Next weekend we have the Royal Ball.  That’s an event where young people are encouraged to come and have a dinner and have a dance and have lots of fun with our current candidates and our current Ambassadors. It’s on March 9th and it’s going to be in the Billy Barker Showroom, and it starts at 5 o’clock.  Tickets are still available but we only have about 25 left “
   Scott says they have their Ambassador’s Tea on April 14th to honour their sponsors and the candidates will be doing their first public speaking.
   She says the big days this year will then be on July 4th and 5th.
   “That’s when we will be having our Showcase and Awards night.  Showcase is where the candidates will be presenting, doing some sort of a multi-media presentation and they will be presenting their favorite speech.  On Awards night we recognize everyone that’s been participating in the program, and then we announce our two new Ambassadors for 2024.”
   This year’s candidates are Aryanna Langan, Taylor Wilwand, Jayla Wheeler, Jane Cronkhite, Lacey Anderson, Aubrey Williams, and Aiyana Doern.
   Scott says there were no male candidates this year unlike last year when they had their first ever.
   “Every community is different and in this community we need a few very brave males to come in and join our program and see that it is a very neutral program.  We don’t do any of the things that they may think is in a stereotypical program.  Our program is really based on building confidence and resilience and building volunteerism in the community.”
   Quesnel’s 2023 Ambassadors are Jamie-Lynn Fedoruk and Avery Cassidy,
