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 through social media post and getting petitions signed. 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 over $300,000 in scholarships.
