Be an ADRA Ambassador at your school
ADRA’s Ambassador Program provides students with valuable experience in serving others, and making a difference in their local community. The ADRA Ambassador plays an important role in positively raising the profile of ADRA in the local community and encouraging other young people to be involved.

A School Liason teacher will oversee the ADRA Ambassador program within their school, supports the 2 Ambassadors in their personal growth and Challenges each term. The School Liaison Person receives support from the ADRA Ambassador Coordinator.
An ADRA Ambassador will be the voice of ADRA in their school. They will help raise awareness about ADRA’s work and will be expected to help run one fundraiser and make announcements to their school.
A full Job Description, including expectations for the student is available to view and download here.
You’ll work alongside a representative from ADRA who will be there to support you.
When you first sign up, the ADRA rep will send you a Welcome pack and organise a meeting with you (either in person or on Zoom).
Our team is there to help, we’ll be able to talk about your schools current capacity and decide on the best ways to engage.
In your Welcome pack, we’ll resource you with everything you need to start making an impact.
You’ll have the opportunity to learn about development in a community setting. You’ll also develop your leadership and communication skills in a supportive environment.
After your service, ADRA will also provide a certificate of recognition which demonstrates your community engagement, the certificate and a reference from your ADRA representative can be used in job and university applications.
Each Term the Ambassador opens a Challenge Pack. Each Challenge is based on one of ADRA’s four areas of development. These are: developing Health, Education, Livelihoods, and responding to Emergencies. The purpose of the Challenges is to create awareness within young people (and the school community) of the needs of others, and creating positive and sustainable change locally and globally. The Ambassador will be supported to develop leadership through each Challenge.
Setting you up to win!
ADRA is excited to partner with all those involved in the School Ambassador Programme—our dedicated Ambassadors, School Liaison Teachers, and wider School community. We anticipate this NEW venture to continue to grow and develop as we learn from each other!
