Ascent Autism Specialist College student, Courtney, has been chosen as the voice of neurodiversity for the Duke of Edinburgh’s (DofE) Youth Ambassador programme.
The DofE UK Youth Ambassador programme involves a varied and engaging programme of activities running from June 2023 to May 2024. There are just a handful of places on the programme with only 30 Youth Ambassadors across the UK – making it even more incredible that Courtney was selected.
