Join a community of passionate rainforest defenders!

What is the Rainforest Ambassador Program?


The Rainforest Ambassador Program engages with college students around the world to protect the rainforest and the rights of indigenous people. As our ambassadors, you will educate your peers on indigenous rights, deforestation and the importance of protecting the rainforest, you will also gain valuable marketing and event-planning experience as well as exclusive access to network of like-minded peers and connect to those working in the intersection of environmental protection and human rights.  Ambassadors are key players at Rainforest Foundation, and we believe our ambassadors will be tomorrow’s climate heroes and human rights champions.
