Child Ambassadors are volunteers who offer their friends, family, neighbors, church, or others in their personal network a tangible way to respond to the needs of the poor and share the hope of Christ by sponsoring a child through World Vision.
We believe that sponsorship is a mutually transforming experience for both the sponsor and the child and is a way to live out Christ’s call to love the poor, the hungry, the sick, and the stranger. As a Child Ambassador, you are living out the Good News in word and deed.
How do Child Ambassadors make sponsorship connections?
All kinds of ways! Child Ambassadors schedule coffee with friends and family, host dinner parties, display their sponsorship materials on their desk at work, plan events at their church, and so much more. When you get started as a CA, we'll give you tons of ideas to get started, and your CA mentor will help you come up with a plan.
How will World Vision equip me as a Child Ambassador?
We'll connect you to a Child Ambassador mentor in your geographic region who will show you the ropes. We'll add you to the Child Ambassador private Facebook group where you'll share ideas and be inspired. We'll start you off with a series of training emails, loaded with tools and materials to assist you. And finally, we'll send you a kit in the mail with our best tools - including a handbook with all the information you'll need.
How much time does this take?
The average Child Ambassador spends about 1-2 hours a week, and that includes a balance between learning and prepping and actually going out into their communities to talk about sponsorship. Being a Child Ambassador can be integrated into your daily life, but it does require some time to be intentional about learning and asking!
