BigFuture Ambassador Program FAQ
Can I sign up to be a BigFuture Ambassador on my own?
Some participants engage in special activities to spread the word by themselves, while others choose to join with their fellow students. Some students have even formed Ambassador Clubs and work with a school faculty member for help with scheduling space or other needs. We provide resources and hold regular meetups to help you start building awareness. It is up to you to decide who else to involve from your school.
Can any student sign up to be an Ambassador?
Signing up is open to any student in grades 9 through12. Students under the age of 13 cannot sign up to become a BigFuture Ambassador.
What are the digital badges mentioned above?
Throughout the year, Ambassadors will have the opportunity to earn digital badges by taking leadership to connect students with BigFuture. The activities that qualify include hosting an event on career exploration or posting about scholarships on social media. These digital badges may help you highlight your experience and skills to colleges and even future employers.
What is the purpose of communication channels like Discord, text, and email?
Ambassadors receive monthly emails with updates and calls to action. In addition to email messages, Ambassadors will also receive updates via text. A Discord server has been set up specifically for BigFuture Ambassadors to communicate with one another and receive resources directly from BigFuture!
What kind of resources are available?
We convene Ambassadors from around the country for regular virtual meetup sessions to share outreach tips and tools to help you build awareness about how to use BigFuture to plan for life after high school. Many past Ambassadors have held BigFuture events at their schools, and others post college and career planning resources on social media. We provide PowerPoint slides, flyers, social media posts and more.
