Student Ambassador Program

Are you a Middle or High School student wanting to make it easier for your community to eat better, move more, or feel good?

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?

Any middle or high school student who wants to help to make it easy, fun, and popular for others to eat better, move more, or feel good 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, 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
