Leadership Programs

Ambassador Program

Ambassadors are some of the most important people on our team. They connect us with their campuses and directly engage their peers. Ambassadors help us host events, write articles for the FtF Blog, liaise with faculty and administrators, provide feedback and suggestions for improving our program offerings, and help our organization expand by engaging with student leaders at their home institution and on campuses across the nation.
