American Heart Association Ambassador Program

The American Heart Association Heart Ball Ambassador Program is a deep engagement opportunity to connect with the Heart Association.

Heart Ball Ambassadors are an inclusive group of high school sophomores who participate in leadership development, community engagement, social and health education programs during the 2021-2022 school year. We renamed the well-known Sweetheart Program in 2019 to include all student leaders, this development program has been in existence since 2002.

The Heart Ball Ambassador Program is a fun, engaging way to prepare young leaders to be future heart health advocates. Through their activities and training, Ambassadors actively support the American Heart Association’s mission: to be a relentless force for a world of longer, healthier lives.

Heart Ball Ambassadors will be presented on February 2022 at the American Heart Association’s prestigious Heart Ball.

We invite you to review the application and additional materials linked below.

Students Practicing CPR

CPR & First Aid Training

Emergencies leave us feeling helpless, but they don’t have to. Take two minutes to learn Hands-Only CPR™ now. 70 percent of out-of-hospital cardiac arrests happen in homes. When a person has a cardiac arrest, immediate CPR can double or triple their chance of survival. Prepare to save a life, find a CPR course near you today.

Where You Live Determines Your Health

In our community, zip code may be more important than genetic code. But we’re working on a path to achieve optimal health for all. Did you know 80% of your health is determined by factors outside of a clinical setting and your genetics? We have the ability to improve heart health!

Preparing Wholesome Foods

Eating healthy doesn’t have to be hard, knowing how to prepare the food is half the battle.

With Cargill's support, the AHA created videos in English and Spanish that demonstrate how to cut and prepare an avocado, a bell pepper, a pineapple and a mango. We also created four meal-time videos, for salmon with cilantro pesto, grilled chicken with strawberry and pineapple salsa, edamame and penne salad with feta, and Tex-Mex chili pie.

We hope you’ll try these recipes!
