What is the Charter Ambassador Program?
With the support of Charter Ambassador Program (CAP) Facilitators at schools, primary and secondary students from all schools in SA may apply to be Charter Ambassadors.
The CAP exists for Charter Ambassadors to:
- be advocates and leaders for all children and young people
- develop an understanding of citizenship privileges and responsibilities
- foster a sense of belonging with society and community.
The CAP is aligned with curriculum in terms of voice and themes that include:
- decision-making and change
- citizenship and influence
- leadership and advocacy.
Why are CAP Facilitators essential?
The Child Development Council coordinates an annual calendar of events.
Educators at schools, facilitate their school’s Charter Ambassadors’ involvement in the CAP.
CAP Facilitators support students to participate in CAP events and promote the Charter.

Charter Ambassadors promote SA’s Charter and they may:
- participate in a presentation at an assembly
- write articles or songs
- produce videos
- create posters and develop games.
