WSF Athlete Ambassador Program
Want to motivate, educate and energize your group?
The WSF Athlete Ambassador Program connects professional, Olympic, amateur and collegiate female athletes with organizations throughout the country. The program matches athletes who want to “pay it forward” by serving as role models to inspire, educate and relate to young girls and those who surround them.
The Athlete Ambassador Program is designed to engage young girls in a meaningful and active way, through sports activities and to educate communities through discussions about health, responsibility and leadership. Our Ambassadors receive WSF training and educational tools, direct access to WSF team for consultation and mentoring. They are athletes across a wide variety of sports, who are experts in their fields and can speak to issues surrounding leadership, motivation, safety and health. The athletes who participate in the program are women who foster a love of sport and want to spread the positive impact that sport can offer to all girls.
For more information about the program, or to request an Athlete Ambassador at an event, please contact Lauren Kamperman at LKamperman@WomensSportsFoundation.org.
