As a non-profit, we’re always looking to find students to get involved. It’s a powerful thing- students working together to help other students across the world. I first got into non-profit work through volunteering and working at fundraisers at my high school that I did to add to my college resume. And it became seeded in my head that if I’m going to work hard at a job for most of my life, then I want it to help people. But it’s not easy to go from wanting to make a difference to actually doing it.
So, we created the AIA Ambassador Program to help students who want to help us. When a student (of any age) wants to become an AIA Ambassador and organizing a fundraiser (or many) to support education in Africa, we give them tools, ideas and tips to help them through the process of fundraising. AIA Ambassadors receive a packet including:
- Welcome letter
- Sample flier and brochure
- Ideas for fundraisers
- Tips for promoting their fundraisers
This toolkit makes it easier for middle school, high school and college students to successfully fundraise for Achieve in Africa by getting insight into what has worked well in the past.
