Emerge as a young leader

Student Ambassadors is a group of college-enrolled young leaders dedicated to making a difference through action, awareness and advocacy to support Feeding Tampa Bay’s mission.


Kaia, Student Ambassador

During this semester-long program, Ambassadors support Feeding Tampa Bay directly by volunteering time, talent, and voice. As the liaison between us and their university, Ambassadors connect our organizational mission to their network to increase awareness, volunteerism, and support for FTB. Ambassadors will attend monthly meetings to discuss the intersection of food insecurity and other social issues. Additionally, Ambassadors will advocate on social media, volunteer with different FTB opportunities, as well as have the opportunity for special leadership projects to promote interpersonal skills.
