American Heart Association Ambassador Program
The American Heart Association Ambassadors Program is a deep engagement opportunity to connect with the Association for up to three years.
Ambassadors are directed in two different ways to support the American Heart Association; Heart Ball Ambassadors and the Go Red Ambassadors Leadership Council. The programs build off one another and provide the opportunity for leadership development, community involvement and heart health education. The Heart Ball Ambassadors program works with high school sophomore boys and girls; successful completion of the Heart Ball Ambassadors Program opens the door to apply for the Go Red Ambassadors Leadership Council Program as a junior or senior.
*The Heart Ball Ambassadors program takes the place of the previous Sweetheart Program*
