Youth Ambassadors

Lessons From My Neighborhood - Duck Dodge & Roll, Les...

Agency: VML


In America, children in underprivileged urban areas face poverty, murder and drugs as part of everyday life. The issues are clear — but most people ignore them.
To get potential donors’ attention, we tapped into their childhood by creating a friendly puppet show. But the show’s educational songs teach the horrific life lessons urban core kids have to learn every day. Each song is inspired by a real lesson taught to us by a real Youth Ambassador.
Youth Ambassadors who grow up in violent neighborhoods write, draw and paint as part of the healing process. Each song was adapted from these creative works, creating a circle of healing that starts and ends with the kids.
