As a Child Ambassador, you will have a unique opportunity to broaden your understanding of what World Vision does to bring hope to children and their families living in poverty.
Although the Summer 2014 contest offers brand new Child Ambassadors a unique opportunity to join a trip (for a very limited time), all Child Ambassadors have ongoing opportunities to potentially visit the field. After a Child Ambassador connects 40 children with sponsors, your name will be placed in a drawing for a spot on an international trip to a World Vision community.* World Vision will cover the cost of your flight, food and accommodations. Ten Child Ambassadors from across the U.S. join this trip each year…and you could be one of them!
You will experience firsthand how sponsorship works in the lives of children when you visit their communities, learn about current development projects, and talk with local people who are creating change with the help of World Vision sponsors, donors and volunteers.
In past years, Child Ambassadors have visited the Dominican Republic, Zambia, India, Peru, Mexico and Guatemala. Last year, qualified Child Ambassadors visited Ecuador!
* There are multiple ways you can work towards this number – you will learn more about this during your training.
