Learn About Our Ambassador Program
An Informed Families Ambassador is a person with a passion for making a difference in the lives of our youth. Ambassadors volunteer their time to bring substance abuse prevention to youth and parents in their community by promoting Informed Families' four prevention campaigns. Informed Families provides the tools and support needed for Ambassadors to spread the message!
Ambassadors are key to their community to help create a drug-free America!
We love to share the news about the great things Ambassadors are doing by featuring activities on our website, Blog and newsletter.
“I discovered the Informed Families website when I was seeking ideas and information about Red Ribbon Week activities. After doing some research, I learned more about the Family Day Campaign and was inspired to implement a Family Day program in my school. We were thrilled by the positive results of our program; 50 parents attended, learning the connection between family dinners and prevention, and the kids were very excited about having regular family dinners.” - Kristina Longino School Counselor
