Are you ambitious? Are you a leader? Are you a high school student? Are you passionate about making a difference in the world, but don’t know where to start?

CONGRATS! You have what it takes to be a student ambassador for SHIC!

What is SHIC?

Students for High Impact Charities (SHIC) is a program designed to help amazing students like you turn into even more amazing leaders, changemakers, and activists. Students in the SHIC program learn about effective altruism- how to do as much good as possible with a limited amount of time and money- through engaging discussions, videos, and exercises. You will get to challenge preconceived notions, critically examine your place in the world, and ask difficult questions about what it really means to help others. Our goal is to empower you so that you feel like you have the necessary tools to go out in the world and make a difference, whether it be in your own community or overseas. In fact, by the end of the program, you’ll have already have made a difference. By week six, students put their new-found knowledge to work and fundraise money for their choice of one of the nine most effective charities in the world.

What is a Student Ambassador?

A SHIC student ambassador is in charge of implementing our SHIC program in their school. This could mean starting a club or simply organising a group of like-minded students to meet after class. We provide you with all of the course material for free and even mentor you prior to starting the program, so that you can feel as comfortable and prepared as possible. Your role will be to facilitate every hour-long session as an extracurricular program. This means preparing the material beforehand and bringing a laptop to read instructions for exercises, discussion questions and videos.

This would be not only an exceptional way of expanding your skill set and diversifying your resume, but also a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be part of an amazing startup with growing traction.

To apply, send us a creative resume and cover letter (and any questions, thoughts, or comments) to ancessicamille@gmail.com. Come join the party! We can’t wait to hear from you!
