    Want to make a difference? Join AmeriCares Student Ambassador Program (ASAP)!

    We’re looking for creative, mission-oriented students interested in global health and humanitarian aid to promote AmeriCares on their college campuses.

    As an ambassador, you will bring AmeriCares to your campus by creating and implementing a campaign-focused marketing and public relations plan that includes events, activities and print/digital material to shine a spotlight on our work. Our Communications team will support you as you carry out your plan and document your progress via blog postings, photos and video.

    What you get: You’ll gain great leadership skills and the opportunity to publish digital content for an international nonprofit organization. Most of all, you’ll make a difference in the lives of people in need.
