Join the ASPIRE Ambassador Team!
Our Ambassador (volunteer) Program consists of dedicated and driven individuals who adhere to the ASPIRE vision, mission, and core values. Ambassadors are the foundation providing the necessary services, supports, networking, and fundraising implementation to efficiently and effectively support survivors of human trafficking, the underserved, and unsheltered in our community.
There are three tiers to the Ambassador Program including:
[ Tier 1 ]
This tier focuses on a strong social media presence. Ambassadors committed and focused at this level serve as a social media presence by sharing fundraising events on their platforms and participating in social media marketing when applicable.
[ Tier 2 ]
This tier addresses training, fundraising and events, administrative support, and grant writing. Ambassadors will have the opportunity to help plan, organize, and become an active role in the implementation of events and fundraisers. Ambassadors may also participate in ASPIRE’s Project Underground Railroad (PURR) trainings raising awareness of human trafficking within the community. These trainings also promote networking and recruitment of additional ambassadors. Ambassadors can also perform administrative duties including scheduling and developing training, disseminating information internally and externally, and documenting tasks and duties completed.
[ Tier 3 ]
This tier is ASPIRE’s most advanced and engaged tier. These ambassadors support human trafficking survivors at ASPIRE’s emergency safe house, provide mentorship and transportation when necessary, perform maintence at the safe house, and offer life skills workshops. This tier includes Community Intervention Services (CIS) team members and Communities Impacting Communities (CIC) team members.
Emergency safe house ambassadors conduct intakes with clients, provide case management, adhere to proper documentation requirements, and support clients with their basic needs. Life skills workshops that teach autonomy will be coordinated and taught by Ambassadors teaching survivors vital skills and knowledge (and support) to reach their goals. Ambassadors of the CIS initiative provide case management and intervention services to the underserved and unsheltered community members. They assist with linking individuals to appropriate services, resources and supports. Ambassadors of the CIC initiative will adhere to the mission of creating a network of partnerships between faith-based organizations, business owners, education institutions and community-based organizations that promote a system of support for survivors. Ambassadors receive appropriate training for each tier identified. Paperwork and clearances are required based on tier and level of involvement with client engagement.
