Volunteer Florida is currently looking for a contractor to handle our Hope Ambassador Program. If you possess high-level organizational skills, have the ability to set goals and priorities, and are interested in assisting in ground-level implementation of a state-wide project, this may be of interest to you!

Project Summary
This project will continue the Hope Ambassador Club program as initiated by the Florida Department of Education.  The program began in 2020 with 25 middle and high schools across Florida, with more than 300 students participating.  A recent expansion has brought the number of schools to 100 public and public charter schools.  Schools are required to establish a club and a setting where students may participate in activities that help foster kindness and compassion through volunteerism, mentoring, leaderdhip and resiliency-building activities.

Contractor Detail Summary

The successful contractor will assist in creating and maintaining a guide to help schools structure their club with mission and rules/procedures, assist with recruitment ideas, identify appropriate programming, identify local needs, assist with gathering information, facts and statistics, assist with setting goals to meet community needs, and assist with processes to identify community support and opportunities for volunteerism.  Further, this contractor will need to establish a reporting process to monitor the number of volunteer and mentor hours and summarize events and provide end of the year evaluation of goal attainment, impact and outcomes.

Desired Skills and Experience

It is anticipated that a working knowledge of the Florida K-12 school system will be beneficial in a successful candidate.  Contract proposals should include any additional human resource needs to complete the required tasks.
