Ambassadors help to organize fundraising events and recruit volunteer groups (ages 16+).
Ambassadors have the opportunity to accompany groups of volunteers to Cambodia at highly reduced rates.
Ambassadors commit a few hours per week to the cause. Much of our networking and recruitment is done through presentations at service clubs, on the Internet, facebook, etc.
