WHO CAN BE AN AMBASSADOR?

The Ambassador program is for anyone over the age of 18, and the Youth Ambassador program is for all those in high school (12+ years) — so there’s an option for everyone!

You'll become a One Girl outreach hero and inspiring your own community to spread the word about the power of girls’ access to education and the importance of self-determination!

The ambassador programs have a $35 sign-up fee which covers your program resources and running costs.

The aim of the Ambassador program is to create a positive online community, where we invite you to come together to learn new skills, make new friends, and continue to support One Girl’s programs through this challenging time. 

What’s involved?

  • You’ll join an interactive online live One Girl workshop in June — you'll virtually meet fellow ambassadors, gain confidence in talking about One Girl and create unique fundraising ideas! 
  • You’ll be given access to engaging ambassador training modules highlighting the One Girl programs, fundraising tips and how supporting girls' education doesn't just improve the lives of girls, or their families, or their communities — it improves the future of our planet!
  • Over the 6-month ambassador program, you’ll work towards the collective fundraising target of $100,000 (it is important to know you are not expected to fundraise solo, the aim is to engage with your peers, families and friends!).
  • You'll take part in (fun!) regular challenges, so you can challenge yourself and your network of friends! 
  • You’ll represent One Girl in spreading the word about the importance of funding when it comes to ensuring COVID-19 doesn’t become yet another barrier preventing girls and young women from accessing education and achieving their potential.
  • You’ll get to take part in our annual Do It In A Dress fundraising campaign in September.

All ambassadors are required to complete our engaging live online workshop run by the One Girl team in June.

The Youth Ambassador program is for those currently completing high school, who want to become inspiring positive leaders within their community. 

It's very similar to the regular Ambassador program, except it's for those under 18 years of age, and aims to create an inclusive online community for high school students to learn new skills, make new friends, collaborate on creative community support ideas and fundraise to support One Girl’s programs through this challenging time.

The youth ambassadors will also contribute to the collective $100,000 fundraising goal to support future One Girl programs and prevent COVID-19 becoming yet another barrier preventing girls and young women from accessing an education and achieving their potential.

How else is it different from the Ambassador program?

  • Youth ambassadors need to have consent from a parent or legal guardian to join the program.
  • Youth ambassadors need a designated teacher (from their school) willing to support them through the program.

A MESSAGE FROM MOLLY

2020 One Girl Ambassador Support Volunteer

2019 One Girl Ambassador

Hello there!

My name is Molly and I was lucky enough to be a One Girl Ambassador in 2019. Being a part of the ambassador program was an incredible experience which really enriched my understanding of the power of education as a tool that can change everything. It allowed me to feel like I was having a positive impact not only on girls living in Sierra Leone and Uganda and their ability to access education, but on the planet. Through the experience I learnt more about the link between girls’ education and the positive impact it has on reversing the effects of climate change. 

I was overwhelmed (as many people are!) with the not only state of the planet, but the continuing inequalities faced by women in accessing things like education, but being an ambassador made me realise there are solutions that exist, and I could be a part of making them happen!

I would encourage anyone to take part in the Ambassador Program if you are passionate about making a real difference and I would also encourage you to get your friends, family or any like-minded individuals involved and form a team! Being in a team allowed me to feel supported and we were able to come up with some amazing fundraising ideas by putting our heads together which led us to raise just over $23,000 together. 

Get involved today, you won’t regret it! 

Molly :)
