Youth Ambassador Program > Curriculum


Internet Governance

As a Youth Ambassador, you participate in a series of sessions led by global Internet governance experts to deepen your knowledge, present your ideas, and prepare for your chosen event. 

Project Management

You hone your project management and development skills through a course developed by Pyramid Learning. You learn the skills to lead and manage projects through the entire project cycle, helping you deliver projects in scope, on time, and within budget.

Advocacy and Communications

The tools and skills in this module allow you to present your position with clarity, conviction, and purpose and grow your mindset, confidence, and ability to engage with various key audiences. You build a roadmap to keep defending the Internet after the program.

Leadership and Entrepreneurship

The leadership and entrepreneurship sessions expose you to leadership across the ecosystem and beyond, drawing on individuals and experiences that exemplify multistakeholder approaches and multi-disciplinary thinking. You will expand your mindset and learn to tackle roadblocks in bringing your vision to life. 


In collaboration with the Youth Coalition on Internet Governance and the Internet Society’s Youth Standing Group, a mentor with a proven track record in your area of interest provides you with first-hand experience in your desired field.

Internet Society Courses

You take these Internet Society-provided courses, covering key Internet policy and technology issues. By completing all of these courses, plus the Internet Governance one (undertaken during the selection process), you will get the Internet Policy and Advocacy Champion certificate.


The program culminates in the symposium, a virtual dynamic event where you present your work, how you would leverage your multidisciplinary and multistakeholder skills, and your plans for taking your learnings and accomplishments beyond the program. This event helps you build and deepen relationships and foster community around youth engagement.
