Be a Student Ambassador!

The Family Resource Network is looking for Student Ambassadors to represent the 2014 Walk for a Brighter Tomorrow. An ambassador is the “face” of the event and uses his or her personal story to inspire, engage and educate the community. Through forming walk teams, speaking engagements, media interviews and public outreach, ambassadors energize others to get involved with the Walk for a Brighter Tomorrow. In addition to involvement as volunteers and fundraisers, the Student Ambassador Program provides opportunities to the participants to build friendships and support. Find out more
