International Development and Fundraising
Specifically designed for students who want to stay involved in international development and community service, Impact Ambassadors engage in 1-on-1 support from staff to host fundraising events, stay involved in global communities, and receive mentoring to elevate their personal passion projects—all while raising money to increase their global impact and building valuable personal and professional skills.
Join the Rustic Squad
This is more than a brand ambassador program. It’s for the students who live and breathe Rustic. Squad members receive cool swag when they’re accepted and join an amazing community of super engaged, go-getter, like-minded students. It is our expectation that Squad members stay active in the Facebook group, participate in focus groups, attend public speaking opportunities and local events, take advantage of mentorship with regional staff, and build a deeper connection with the larger Rustic community. Squad members are positive change-makers who act as a voice for Rustic Pathways in their community. Sound fun? We think so, apply now!
The application join the Rustic Squad will open August 1. If you have any questions, reach out to Rachel at firstname.lastname@example.org.
