Let There Be Mom is excited to continue our Student Ambassador program in the 2021-2022 school year. Our goal is to equip students to be stable branches of our organization within their schools. They will be responsible for spreading the word about our mission, our volunteer opportunities, and our upcoming events. Students will engage with local leaders within our community to learn valuable skills that will help them not only through this process, but also within their lives.
Up to 20 local high school juniors and/or seniors may be selected to participate in the program (no more than two representatives from the same school). Students will be expected to attend meetings (typically in the evening, on the 3rd Tuesday of each month) throughout the school year and will have the opportunity to serve as lead volunteers during events. The program will not be all work – expect to have some fun!
