Loughs Agency’s Ambassador Programme is designed to connect young people with the Foyle and Carlingford Loughs, their tributaries and wildlife through recreation, volunteering and conservation opportunities. Using the John Muir Trust Award we encourage our Ambassadors to discover more, explore more, conserve more and share more. Since 2014 over 200 teenagers have graduated as Ambassadors with a greater understanding and respect for the watersheds that so many of us take for granted.
Ambassadors do not only build lasting connections with the catchments, they also build lasting friendships with people from different backgrounds. The experiences they gain provides them with skills for life through fun, friendship and adventure. The Ambassador Programme has the potential to reach many more young people, creating a stronger community and inspiring everyone to love our waterways.
The programme runs throughout the year in a variety of formats during school term as well Easter and Summer breaks. We recruit for the programme through our website, social media and press.
