    Ambassador Program

    NSHSS Ambassadors are student leaders within their high schools who exhibit academic excellence and strong commitment to community service. As role models, Ambassadors are encouraged to inspire their peers to explore new initiatives within their high schools and communities by organizing community service projects and gatherings with fellow members to support the vision of NSHSS.

    Ambassadors are responsible for playing a vital role in communicating with current and prospective members about how to make the most of membership in the Society through social media and their school network. Each Ambassador receives an official kit welcoming them to the program with information regarding their full list of responsibilities and an exclusive NSHSS Ambassador t-shirt.

    Typical responsibilities include

    • Take over our NSHSS social media platforms by showing “A Day-in-the-Life of an NSHSS Member” through Instagram and Snapchat
    • Priority selection for leading our volunteering efforts at in-person events
    • Opportunity to introduce VIP speakers at in-person and online events
    • Join a worldwide network of high-achieving scholars and professionals
    • Gain access to the Ambassador online chat community for networking opportunities (Slack) 
    • Promote scholarships and other exciting opportunities on social media 
    • Network with like-minded and high-achieving peers 
    • Participate in various NSHSS-focused outreach and awareness activities such as writing a blog or peer-to-peer mentoring
    • Organize local service projects for their community or school


    Eligibility: To qualify for membership in the Ambassador Program, existing NSHSS members must be in their sophomore, junior or senior year of high school
