Applications for McCall Ambassador to Project 351 are now being accepted. Project 351 is a Massachusetts organization that celebrates the ethic of service, youth leadership, and the unifying and uplifting power of community. At the heart of Project 351 is the dedication and compassion of our eighth grade Ambassadors. Ambassadors are selected for their exemplary ethic of service and values of kindness, compassion, humility, and gratitude. Being a McCall Ambassador is a true growth experience, as Ambassadors meet and volunteer with other students from throughout Massachusetts, engage in group community service activities, and participate in leadership training seminars throughout the year.
