Ambassador Program

Purpose

The purpose of this program is for our Ambassadors to be a part of our national team of Beginning Over Foundation Volunteers working to make a difference in the lives of survivors of domestic violence and homicide. This involves raising awareness in your community and beyond. With your help the Ambassadors will communicate with local media, hold fundraisers, perform awareness activities and recruit more amazing Beginning Over Foundation supporters.

Roles and Responsibilities

It’s easy! We would like to see the Ambassadors committing 2-4 hours a week in their efforts. A computer with Internet access is required, as is a self-starting attitude.

The Ambassadors across the globe will work directly with Heidi, our Founder and Volunteer Coordinator, to get your efforts off the ground. You will be responsible for all your administrative costs that may occur for activities. We will help you get these items printed and delivered by providing graphics and identifying companies that can help you get it done.

We will provide press release templates and assist in the writing of them if necessary. Once the press releases are completed it will be up to you to pitch them to your local TV, radio stations and newspapers.
