The DonorsChoose Teacher Ambassador Program is a group of experienced teachers that serve as DonorsChoose experts in their communities. The primary goal of a Teacher Ambassador is to help new teachers get started on DonorsChoose, and to mentor new teachers at their school in how to create a successful classroom project.
Teacher Ambassadors also help spread the word about funding opportunities, help our team improve the teacher experience on our site, and build a community of DonorsChoose teachers at their school.
How are Teacher Ambassadors selected?
Teacher Ambassadors are selected by the DonorsChoose team based on their experience creating and funding projects on DonorsChoose, completing thank you packages, and cultivating a community of classrooms supporters. Teacher Ambassadors often have a proven track record of helping new teachers get started using the Refer-a-Teacher Tool.
What is the goal of the DonorsChoose Teacher Ambassador Program?
The goal of the DonorsChoose Teacher Ambassador Program is to help new teachers across the nation create their very first project on DonorsChoose, getting the resources they need for their classroom without needing to pay out of pocket.
