Teen Reading Ambassador Application

Applications for the Teen Reading Ambassador initiative is open for Fall/Spring 2024/25.

This program positions local teens as reading ambassadors in their own high schools. Worlds Of Words Teen Reading Ambassadors interact with published authors of young adult literature, receive books by that author and share their experience with their peers to promote reading in their school communities. The Teen Reading Ambassador initiative is administered by the Worlds of Words Center in the University of Arizona College of Education. For more information, visit our ambassador page.
