Become a MEDIAGIRLS Ambassador

We have passionate supporters and active followers on social media. We want to empower you and recognize your interest in becoming MEDIAGIRLS ambassadors to help raise awareness and funds for MEDIAGIRLS events, initiatives, and programs. We are so excited to launch this program and tell you more about it!

While we’d like our AMBASSADORS to BE active on their social media networks, professional experience is not necessary. Passion for OUR MISSION and the desire to be more closely connected to the organization is our main requirement. Together, we can EXPAND OUR COMMUNITY AND BRING MORE AWARENESS TOWARD THE NECESSITY FOR OUR PROGRAMMING.

What Does Being a MEDIAGIRLS Ambassador Involve?

The main thing we’d like you to do is help us spread the word about MEDIAGIRLS AND AMPLIFYING OUR MESSAGE. In essence, we’d like your help in promoting activities, causes, campaigns, and our mission. In addition, you may be asked to do the following (though nothing is mandatory):

  • Be part of the conversation and encourage dialogue on our social networks
  • Help direct people to mediagirls resources
  • Participate in our fundraising events and invite your networks to join
  • Give feedback on new resources and services before they are officially launched
  • Occasionally participate in focus groups or topical internal conversations

What are the Benefits of Being a MEDIAGIRLS Ambassador?

As an ambassador, here are some benefits you’ll enjoy:

  • The joy of spreading the mission of the organization and helping more girls!
  • Recognition on our website
  • Opportunities for your stories to be shared on our social media accounts
  • Future invitations to attend meetups or events
  • Opportunities for some officialmediagirls swag!

Sounds great! Whats My Next Steps?

To get started, we just need you to send us an email to mediagirls@mediagirls.org, where you can tell us more about yourself, including:

  • Your contact information.
  • Which social media channels you use, and your handles/accounts/websites that you plan on using as an advocate.
  • Why you want to be a mediagirls ambassador

 

That’s it! Once we receive your message, we’ll send you a welcome packet in a few weeks, which will include instructions, important numbers, and links.

Thanks for your interest, and we look forward to having you as an ambassador! In the meantime, if you have any questions, feel free to contact us!

Through MEDIAGIRLS, she hopes to address these issues and be a force for positive change. She is so excited to get involved with MEDIAGIRLS as an ambassador, as the mission of the organization aligns with her passions for womens’ and girls+ empowerment and media literacy.
