Our Mission: To connect youth with resources that encourages leadership. Our Vision: A future community of empowered youth. Our core belief: Youth are our future, we have a responsibility to provide them with strategies and skills to be successful socially-conscious citizens.
Our Young Ambassadors Program inspire our teens and college students to pursue their dreams and to be a positive impact in the lives of others. The program incorporates youth empowering youth. The Young Ambassadors are charged with the responsibility to be mentors to the children in the Youth Can program and to uplift and support their peers. They are facilitators of our Youth Can activities and projects, which includes the six-week summer enrichment program. The Young Ambassadors conduct monthly meetings to discuss the needs of their communities. They recruit other youth to participate in the program and community service projects. The community service projects include outreach efforts with hunger relief, children and senior citizen advocacy.
The program has proven to be successful. Our Young Ambassadors who help founded the program are now graduates from college and those who joined as Youth Can kids are eagerly entering into our Young Ambassador Program. Our Young Ambassadors Alumnus who are in universities and colleges throughout the U.S. remains active in our programs throughout the year. Their commitment and dedication to our programs have contributed to their desires to serve their college communities in leadership roles.
Exposing children to different cultures avails them to life's possibilities. The goal of our Youth Can and Young Ambassadors programs is to inspire generations of children, youth and young adults to strive to be the best that they can and to encourage their peers to do so as well. Our programs embrace confidence, self-worth, integrity, empathy, and compassion which helps build character.

I was a young ambassador throughout high school, and I met so many people that helped me grow and learn through the experiences that I had. I was able to gain leadership experience which has served me well. I also had a lot of fun and made lifelong friends."

"My eight year old participated in the Youth Can Kids program for the first time this summer. He loved all the activities and field trips that were well thought out for them to do. He met other kids from all walks of life and cultures. I love that it is a faith-based program and that it teaches giving back and servanthood."

"Sharing the Love is the best nonprofit I have ever heard of. Their desire is to share God's love and help other's by lifting them up and letting them know that God has an amazing purpose for their lives. God is leading the volunteers to serve anyone in need. Whether they need food or prayer, visiting senior citizens, summer kids camp and the list goes on and on. I am enjoying watching it grow. God Bless."
"Sharing the Love Foundation is an Amazing organization! My daughter Brooke has been part of Young Ambassadors for over 6 years and I have watched her grow from a quite shy young woman to a strong outspoken young woman who does not shy away from people. I have been blessed to have been a part of the youth can camp and to watch the love and support from everyone to the kids who attend the camp. Thank you to Marian Stewart and the Sharing the Love Board for all you do!"
