Child Ambassador FAQ's

What are World Vision Child Ambassadors?

Child Ambassadors are volunteers who share about World Vision child sponsorship with their friends, family, neighbors, church, or other connections in their personal network.

Great! Our next application window will open in December of 2020! Watch for your email for more information to come!

What are the requirements to be a Child Ambassador?

You must be 18 years of age or older, living in the United States, and a current World Vision child sponsor (Not a sponsor? Consider sponsoring a child today!). You'll also need to agree to the World Vision Statement of Faith and complete a background check, which we require for all of our volunteers for the protection of children. 

How will World Vision equip me as a Child Ambassador? 

You will have one on one access to a Child Ambassador Coach, who will help you get started, connect you with resources and help you put a plan into action. We’ll also introduce you to a Child Ambassador mentor in your geographic region who will connect you with other local CAs and share opportunities in your area. We'll add you to the Child Ambassador private Facebook group where you'll share ideas and be inspired. We'll start you off with a series of training emails, loaded with tools and materials to assist you. And finally, we'll send you a kit in the mail with our best tools - including a handbook with all the information you'll need.

How do Child Ambassadors make sponsorship connections? 

All kinds of ways! Child Ambassadors schedule coffee with friends and family, host dinner parties, display their sponsorship materials on their desk at work, plan events at their church, and so much more. When you get started as a CA, we'll give you tons of ideas to get started, and your CA Coach will help you come up with a plan. 

How much time does this take?

The average Child Ambassador spends about 1-2 hours a week, and that includes a balance between learning and prepping and actually going out into their communities to talk about sponsorship. Being a Child Ambassador can be integrated into your daily life, but it does require some time to be intentional about learning and asking!
