Teen Ambassadors

Helping others can be so rewarding.

The Teen Ambassador Program is comprised of a select group of high school students chosen based on academic merit and commitment to volunteering. Teens commit to a service year from August-April and meet at least once a month at the Ronald McDonald House.

This program gives teens a greater understanding of several aspects of a nonprofit organization and shows them the importance of giving back to the community.

During their service Teens work on:

  • service projects around the House
  • fundraising and special events
  • planing their own fundraiser as a group as their final project.

Their purpose is to create awareness, raise funds and support the Ronald McDonald House of Eastern NC. This program gives teens a greater understanding of several aspects of a non-profit organization and shows them the importance of giving back to their community.

“A person always doing his or her best becomes a natural leader, just by example.”

– Joe Dimaggio

Applications are due June 28th.

Must be a student entering grade 10 or higher.
