Q: Who is the Project Proactive Ambassador program meant for?
A: Anyone who wants to be involved in spreading mental health awareness, community outreach, helping others, etc. We’re looking for people who believe in the cause and want to be a face of the organization in whatever form they choose.
Q: What would be the time commitment of being an ambassador?
A: There are going to be 2 monthly meetings: one for all the ambassadors to update on where they are holding on with their goals and the other will be a program or speaker.
After that, everything is done on your own time (with assistance as needed). Whatever you choose to be your form of advocating for the mission will be what you’re going to work on throughout the month. We’re going to work with you on creating practical and realistic goals to work towards. The time commitment is really dependent on your commitment and drive.
Q: What is the application process?
A: After a person fills out the application, they are going to receive an email within a few days with time slots for an interview. After the interview, they will receive a letter regarding their acceptance status.
Q: What are some of the initiatives I can do as an ambassador?
A: There are all different things available as well as the option to come up with your own way of doing things. The idea is to do something that can make a difference and there are all different ways to do that. Our goal is to help you find the way you’re most comfortable with and work from there. Some of the options that we have are:
Q: What are the benefits of being an ambassador?
A: The biggest benefit of being an ambassador is having the structure, resources and assistance in taking action in something you believe in. Along with that, some other benefits are getting to hear from specific speakers throughout the year, a community of like minded people working towards similar goals, and, of course, swag.
Q: Can I still apply mid year?
A: Yes! Acceptances are on a rolling basis. Anyone who joins after the initial September meeting will receive a video to watch that will give them the information needed to join the program at that time.
