Young Ambassadors

Work like a Horse supports children who deserve a helping hand. For us it is of the essence to stay in close contact and to cooperate with our main target groups. We are of the opinion that we can learn a lot from the same youth we are working with. That is why we asked some of the former participants in our projects to become a member of our Young Ambassadors. We’re sure they can help us to improve our projects and we look forward to meeting them on a regular basis.
