Student Ambassador Program (ASAP)
About The Program
We’re looking for creative, mission-oriented students interested in global health and humanitarian aid to promote Americares on their college campuses. Apply Here!
As an ambassador, you will bring Americares to your campus by creating and implementing a campaign-focused marketing and public relations plan that includes events, activities and print/digital material to shine a spotlight on our work. Our Communications team will support you as you carry out your plan and document your progress via blog postings, photos and video.
What You Get:
You’ll gain great leadership skills and the opportunity to publish digital content for an international nonprofit organization. Most of all, you’ll make a difference in the lives of people in need.
How It Works
Spread the word on campus about our work! Introduce students and faculty to our mission, programs and activities.

- Currently enrolled in a college or university in the United States
