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
Eligibility: To qualify for membership in the Ambassador Program, existing NSHSS members must be in their sophomore, junior or senior year of high school with a cumulative GPA of 3.7 or higher.

Robert Hull is a part of the track team, DECA, and highly involved within his church. He has helped to host a 5K run to raise money for cancer research with his track team, participated in "Rake n Leave Day" where he raked yards for people who do not have the time or physically cannot do it themselves, and participates in school fundraising booths to raise money for different types of research and diseases. Additionally, Robert has donated blankets and clothes to homeless shelters, and assisted shelters in sorting clothes for thrift stores or to send to third world countries, and mentors 5th and 6th grade students. Robert would like to start an initiative that brings awareness to anxiety, stress, depression, and will help them receive the help they need since everyone does not have the accessibility to the help needed. He would like to have a carnival or a walk where there would be stations set up for different mental health problems that people can go to, to be able to talk to someone, not feel judged, and to be able to raise money in support of these causes. Robert attributes his mental strength to strict parents, being a young gymnast, track, and focusing on his future goals. This drive has allowed Robert to grow in certain areas and make more of a difference than he initially thought he could. In the future, he would like to start a non-profit that helps send clean water, food, clothes and more to third world countries. He would also like to have a research center set up for cancer (and other disease research) so the world can become a healthier place. "Since joining the NSHSS my life has changed a lot. NSHSS has allowed me to show my community and people around me, that I am more than just an athlete, but a person who truly cares about his academics and community. Since joining I have been able to talk to more people about making a change in my community and at my own high school I helped my DECA program expand what community service we do and give back more so we can help make a change. I also helped come up with what my youth group should do for our charity event earlier this year when we went to a local homeless shelter on a Saturday morning and gave up our time to help sort donations. By seeing what other ambassadors (and NSHSS) has done has guided me in how I can make a difference in my own community. I plan on using my ambassadorship to help move along some of my ideas for community events and help spread awareness about mental health issues and diseases that we can help prevent or do more to make our community, county, state, country, and world a healthier and better place to live!" says Robert.
Monica is passionate for women's rights and the empowerment of women. As a Latina woman, she doesn't see enough representation in politics or in the world of fame and glamour. The oppression of women is something she refuses to accept and plans on changing this by becoming an activist now, while in her teenage years. She also is currently planning to star her own club in school and possibly an NSHSS chapter to help my fellow peers. Being an NSHSS member has opened doors to several amazing opportunities for Monica including college visits to help decide which institution would be best fitted for her. "I have not been lucky enough to go on any of these amazing tours due to financial issues beyond my reach but I hope one day I am able to apply to a scholarship and given the honor," says Monica.
