What is the ASF Foundation Student Ambassadors program?
The Student Ambassadors Program was established in 2001 to present an opportunity for high school students to further develop their skills in good citizenship and leadership. Since then, the ASF Foundation has partnered with great businesses such as AT&T, State Farm, the AL. Dept. of Public Health, and others, to push specific initiatives such as Don’t Text and Drive, Smoke-Free Alabama, and Don’t Drink and Drive and Remember to Buckle Up. Further development of skills in the following areas:
Personal Growth/Development Team Work
Community Involvement Public Relations
Responsibility Public Speaking
Confidence Building Event Planning
Who's Eligible? High School students (9-12th grade) in Alabama with a strong display of academics, work ethic, leadership, and communication skills.
What are the Student Ambassadors duties?
Community Service Initiative: DISTRACTED DRIVING
The main responsibility will be to promote the current community service initiative in their school and community. Ambassadors may also choose a secondary community service initiative approved by the ASF Foundation.
The Student Ambassadors will be a spokesperson distributing the initiative material to the schools and businesses in the community, speaking on television and radio about the initiative or taking press releases to the local newspapers. Along with promoting the current initiative, the Student Ambassadors will have the opportunity to volunteer or work with their school counselors to either sign up and attend the Ur Keys 2 Drv Summit, which focuses on the initiative, or bring back a mini version of the Ur Keys 2 Drv Summit to their school using the same concept. Further, ambassadors will serve as ASF Foundation representatives at events taking place in their community and possibly attending the ASF Foundation's Alabama State Games multi-sport event as an event coordinator volunteer.
Along with gaining invaluable experience working with the ASF Foundation and the program partners throughout the year, deserving student ambassador will be eligible to be awarded an ASF Foundation Academic Scholarship. To date, the ASF Foundation has awarded nearly $300,000 in scholarships.
