Who Are Cultiva Ambassadors?

An ambassador is “a person who acts as a representative or promoter of a specified activity.” As a Cultiva Ambassador, your role is to be a representative of Cultiva by working with the Cultiva team, sharing Cultiva’s mission, and raising funds to help others have a better life, food security, and the dignity of providing for their own family.  

Cultiva Ambassadors are a force for good in the world. They help alleviate human suffering. They advocate the belief that sustainable impact happens when people understand the real need and treat the cause and not just the symptoms. Cultiva Ambassadors promote the value of effective humanitarian work over efficient humanitarian work and they educate others about the difference between external poverty and internal poverty. 

This is a great program for high school and college students who want to build their resumes, make a difference, experience a new culture, and differentiate themselves from their peers as they apply for jobs, college, and graduate school.
