College students with a passion for service can help build a culture of changemaking on their campuses with the Sullivan Ambassador Program this fall.

The Algernon Sydney Sullivan Foundation is looking to recruit Student Ambassadors for 2019-2020 at colleges and universities in the Sullivan network across the American Southeast. Applications will be accepted through June 8, 2019.

The role of a Student Ambassador includes:

  • Strengthening your school’s changemaking community—These students will represent the Sullivan Foundation brand and market to and recruit students for Sullivan programs, such as the twice-yearly Social Entrepreneurship Field Trips and the twice-yearly Ignite Retreats. They will also design and execute their own Student Ambassador Projects to bring the Sullivan experience to their campuses and/or communities. Projects might include launching a Social Entrepreneurship Club; creating club or organization events on their campuses; supporting student projects related to service or social entrepreneurship; or arranging speaking engagements for a Sullivan facilitator or an experienced social entrepreneur. Student Ambassadors can win up to $500 to be applied toward their projects.
  • Share the Sullivan Foundation story via social media—Student Ambassadors will coordinate one #CampusTakeover of the Sullivan Foundation’s social media accounts, including Instagram and Facebook, per semester. They will also use the foundation’s social media accounts to share occasional updates and/or newsworthy stories and photos related to their school’s service and social entrepreneurship projects and activities.
  • Build connections with fellow Student Ambassadors and social entrepreneurs—The Sullivan Ambassador Program will create a network of Sullivan-affiliated changemakers on campuses across the region. Student Ambassadors can join virtual chat groups and monthly virtual video calls to stay up-to-date on fellow changemakers’ projects, build relationships and get support from students on other campuses, and meet and learn from experienced changemakers in the Sullivan Speakers’ Bureau.

Serving as a Sullivan Student Ambassador creates educational and networking opportunities for student changemakers that extend far beyond their own campuses. Click here to fill out an application or learn more by contacting Harrison Wood at or 256-683-0791.
