What if we told you that you could make a global impact by socializing with your friends and family? When you sign up to be a Global Ambassador for Street Business School (SBS), you can enjoy time with your favorite people and support SBS at the same time! And, in as little as one hour, you can make a big impact and help us toward our mission to lift 1 million people out of extreme poverty by 2027.
``As a champion for women and girls, I am proud to give back to SBS as a donor and Global Ambassador co-chair. My favorite thing about SBS is the ripple effect it causes in the next generation of girls. I have seen firsthand the inspired daughters, nieces, and friends who look up to women who have started their own business.``
-Pat Brown, Global Ambassador Program Co-Chair
Last year, Global Ambassador events raised funds to send 72 women to SBS, lifting themselves and their 360 children out of poverty. That means 432 lives were changed from people hosting small gatherings where they share the work of SBS. By helping SBS raise funds and raise friends, Global Ambassador hosts are catalysts to create better lives for women around the world. Many hosts tell us how meaningful it is for them to share their passion for SBS with their family and friends who attend Global Ambassador events, and how impactful the events are for their guests. This year, our goal is to send 434 women to SBS through Global Ambassador events. Will you join us?
``I've always been motivated by the proverb, 'teaching a woman to fish,' and I believe that when you teach a woman to fish, she will lift her entire family out of poverty. This is clearly where the power to change communities and the future lies. And this is what SBS does best!``
-Jonna Holland, Global Ambassador Program Co-Chair
Have you heard of SBS Global Ambassador events? These are gatherings of any size where people who believe in our mission can share the work of SBS with their community. We make it incredibly easy for you to host an event. People host SBS events in their homes, at restaurants, at their church and at their workplace. We are so excited about these gatherings and the potential to spread the SBS story, make friends, and support women.
And, even during COVID-19, we help to make it easy for you to host an event. Your event can be virtual or socially distanced. No matter what you choose, you can still make a huge impact. We will send you everything you need in your SBS Global Ambassador Toolkit – it’s easy to participate!
