JBFC AmbassadorsSeptember 1, 2016 2:36 pm
Though things are winding down for the year in terms of volunteers in Tanzania, in the U.S. we hope they are just getting started. Students, families and interns who visit our campus have such a vital role in our mission. They are the ones who have seen what we do first hand and are most equipped to share their experience, the relationships they made, and the hope that our model brings to the children we serve. They are the ones who can tell the stories of girls who are coming out of their shell for the first time, or growing into amazing leaders in Girls Government. We know that they are our very best promoters.
In fact, we call them ambassadors. They are the ones who represent JBFC to their families, schools, friends and communities once they return from their visit to our campus. Our ambassadors have a crucial role, and we’re so grateful for all they do. From bake sales to school clubs, ambassadors in the past have done so much.
Students from Bronxville High School did a brick by brick campaign, selling virtual bricks for $250 to build our secondary school.
Other ambassadors have asked friends and family to support JBFC for their birthday or Christmas gifts. One ambassador was able to raise enough to purchase a classroom set of tablets for our school.
It’s so exciting to see what can happen when ambassadors can use their gifts and passions to help our mission.
