Our Student Board Ambassador Program

Our Student Board Member program is designed to engage Junior High students and  provide the opportunity to participate in real-world challenges, facilitate critical thinking and communication among professionals. Our students benefit from the transformational experience, all while representing the needs of their school site.


Purpose & Benefit:

  • Students bring a unique perspective to foundation ideas and programs

  • Viewpoints and ideas of students are essential because most of our programs focus on them.

  • Students and adults obtain a better understanding and appreciation of one another  working side by side on goal-related projects

  • Students gain leadership skills, such as goal-setting, decision-making, team building and conflict resolution, enhancing their own personal growth and development

  • Students obtain community service opportunities

  • Students receive a special community service award and will be recognized at their 8th grade promotion ceremony


Student Responsibilities:

  • Become a full voting member. 1 vote per school site. We have found it more effective when schools sites nominate more than 1 student representative.  Students can share tasks and responsibilities.

  • Attend monthly board meetings, no less than 50%

  • Contribute to board discussions.

  • Represent and share school site needs.

  • Share foundation information with school site community. Attend & Report back to PTA & School Site Council.

  • Volunteer at a minimum of one event/project

    • Write Articles for Newsletter/Blog

    • Robot Nation

    • Cut-A-Thon
