About

Thank you for your interest in becoming a Henrik Lundqvist Foundation Young Ambassador (HLFYA)!  The Henrik Lundqvist Foundation was founded in 2014 by NHL goaltender Henrik Lundqvist and his wife Therese to make a difference in the lives of children and their families throughout the world, in the areas of health and education. The Young Ambassadors program was developed because HLF believes in the incredible power of young people to make a difference in the world and we want to give you a platform to do just that!

  1. Be between the ages of 12 and 18; and
