Texas Advocacy Project provides training on healthy relationships, teen dating violence, positive social media presence, and leadership skills to all Teen Ambassadors of Hope. Ambassadors earn service hours for volunteer endeavors and can highlight their efforts on college and scholarship applications, allowing them to stand out among their peers. By the end of the campaign, Teen Ambassadors will have made an impact on their communities through philanthropy and peer outreach all while gaining leadership skills to build self-confidence.
Selected Ambassadors will participate in the 4th Annual Teen Ambassadors of Hope campaign with the following goals:
• Champion the Mission and Services of Texas Advocacy Project
• Promote Awareness of Dating Violence and Healthy Relationships
• Raise Funds for Texas Advocacy Project
Through fundraising and volunteering, Ambassadors will compete among each other for the top 3 2018 Teen Ambassador of the Year awards. The Outstanding Impact Award is selected by peer ballot and will recognize the Ambassador with the most imaginative or widespread impact on creating awareness of healthy relationships and teen dating violence in his or her community or school.
The Facebook Online Safety Team has joined with us this year and will be one of the presenters at the training on April 15. Dr. Barry Bales, Assistant Dean of the LBJ School of Public Affairs at UT Austin will also return to present on Leadership Skills.
