"In the Ambassador Program you are not only helping to create change and raise awareness for the fair trade movement within the community, but you are also positively contributing to the movement globally." - Noelle Chan, 2018

"This is a flexible program that you can fit around your schedule. It will teach you about fair trade and how it can act as a catalyst for conversations on social change." - Landon Reeves, 2018

"Being involved with fair trade made me a more conscious consumer - where it came from, who produced it, and how. I was able to meet many like-minded, yet diverse, individuals and work together on projects on campus. I recommend it for anyone who wants to get involved but with flexible  commitment and take on their own initiatives!" - Nikki Mertens, 2019

The knowledge and experience that I've gained through the program will stay with me for my entire life. Becoming a Fair Trade Ambassador will make you a member of the most passionate, powerful, inspiring global community you could possibly imagine. I would recommend it to anyone looking to make a positive impact." - Elysha Fong, 2019
