Dallas Young Leaders Ambassador

We understand that teenagers have busy lives and some might need a more flexible schedule that enables them to give back as their schedule permits. Become a Young Leaders Ambassador and create your own volunteer activities at your school, church, neighborhood, family reunion, etc. The options are limitless and we encourage you to get creative!  The best part is that you can execute the activity in your own time.


Some suggestions for YL Ambassador volunteer activities:

  • Plan a PJs for Patients Day at your school and have students donate $1 to wear Pjs

  • Gather some friends and Host a Bake Sale at your church

  • During Childhood Cancer Awareness Month in September, host a “Going Gold” game at your school where everyone is encouraged to wear gold and make a donation

  • Host a Bag for a Hero drive and collect donations for patients' caregivers

  • Put together Bags for a Smile to be delivered to patients in the hospital

  • Ask your neighbors to donate $5 for you to tie a gold ribbon around their trees

  • Create a challenge to honor the 1,800 children who are diagnosed with cancer in Texas each year and start a fundraising campaign online

  • Talk with your dedicated Community Relations person at school to discuss ideas!


To earn credit for volunteer/fundraising hours, contact HFC staff to advise of project. Once your activity has been completed, submit photos and your completed Young Leaders Ambassador Volunteer form to jnelson@heroesforchildren.org
