What is a Child Ambassador?

Child Ambassadors are dedicated volunteers who know firsthand the life-changing impact of sponsoring a child. Our team works to improve the lives of children and families living in poverty by giving others in our communities the chance to sponsor. By connecting others to this powerful cause, we truly are advocating for children everywhere!

World Vision has volunteer Child Ambassadors in every state of the U.S. – but we have a great need for more. Please join us! As our team grows, our efforts to fight global poverty will be magnified.
