The MoU Ambassador programme started in early 2020.  

MoU partners wanted to ensure that young black men have a robust voice within the programme and have wider influence by serving as Ambassadors in various public and business settings. 

This influence would be by sharing their views with: 

  • Key MoU Stakeholders (via MoU Advisory Group, workshops) 

  • Employers (via Employer Champions Groups) 

  • Partners delivering employment outcomes (via Collective Impact Partnerships) 

  • Other young black men (via social media platforms, blogs and through word of mouth) 

Our Ambassadors provide their own personal perspective and lived experience as young black men in London, along with their insight to help shape the programme and the work that our partners continue to do. 

When selecting our fourteen Ambassadors, we sought to recruit enthusiastic and talented ‘can do’ individualspassionate about helping to improve life opportunities and employment possibilities for young black males aged 16-24.
