A very special part of HLF is the Ambassador
Program. In 2015, HLF launched its first
foundation-run program, the Henrik Lundqvist
Foundation Young Ambassadors Program
because of Henrik's belief in the incredible
power of young people to make a difference in
the world. The HLFYA program, which spans an
entire school year, requires selected participants
ages 12-18 to complete a minimum of 15 hours
of community service, organize 1 independent
service project in support of children's health
and education and to team up with HLF on a
service project.
We are so proud to be able to share with you the
good works of the Henrik Lundqvist Foundation
and how he and his wife Therese serve as change
agents to transform children's lives.
"Being an HLFYA has inspired me to give my
time, heart, and resources to people who have
little. The Lundqvists' example taught me that
charity and helping those in need is a lifetime
habit. I know I wil continue giving back because
thanks to my HLFYA projects, I saw how much
my help can affect people's lives.
Being an HLF Young Ambassador inspired me to
live a life of charity now I know that I can do it."

"My favorite aspect of the HLYFA Program was
the independent service project. If I was not a
Young Ambassador for HLF, most likely, I would
not have done an independent service project
on my own. HLF helped me plan the project
and make sure I had everything I needed for it
to be a success... The HLFYA program opened
me up to the idea of smal independent service
projects that can make a big difference."
