What are the Student Ambassadors duties?
The ASF Foundation Student Ambassadors will be responsible for helping promote the ASF Foundation and all of its programs. The main responsibility will be to promote the current statewide community initiative in their school and community. The Student Ambassadors will be a spokesperson distributing the community service 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 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 over $290,000 in scholarships.
