Student Ambassador Program

Applications are currently closed. Watch for information about the 2019-2020 Student Ambassador application.

Are you a student in Middle or High School wanting to make it easier for your school or community to eat better and move more?

Here is your chance to take action! We help Student Ambassadors receive the materials and supplies necessary to help make their idea a reality! 

Through this program, Student Ambassador teams will receive up to $500 to create and complete a project that helps "PowerUp" their school or community.

What is the role of a PowerUp Student Ambassador?

Middle or high school students who want to help to make it easy, fun, and popular for others to eat better and move more can be a Student Ambassador! Student Ambassadors spread the PowerUp message in meaningful, sustainable ways by taking the PowerUp Pledge, completing a project to PowerUp their school or community, volunteering at PowerUp community events, and have the opportunity to become a member of the PowerUp Teen Leadership Council.

How do I know if being a Student Ambassador is for me?

If you:
  • Are passionate about health and wellness
  • Want to make a difference in your school and/or community
  • Are seeking meaningful ways to gain leadership experience
  • Need volunteer or community service hours
