Andrew Goodman Foundation Ambassadors
Andrew Goodman Vote Everywhere, the Andrew Goodman Foundation’s signature program, builds a national, non-partisan, civic engagement movement of student leaders and university partners. Since its inception, Andrew Goodman Vote Everywhere has expanded to 25 states, plus Washington, D.C., and engages over 100 student Ambassadors.
The program partners with America’s colleges and universities to provide resources, visibility, and mentoring to a national network of student leaders who involve their peers in participatory democracy through long-term voter engagement, public policy, and social justice initiatives.
As a component of the Vote Everywhere program, the Andrew Goodman Ambassadorship is typically a three-year commitment. Students enter the program during their sophomore year and are encouraged to continue throughout their academic careers. While in the program, Andrew Goodman Ambassadors develop strategic organizing skills and advocate for their community’s voting and civil rights. To support their work, students receive a stipend, activities budget, and ongoing mentorship, support, and training from AGF’s staff and network of social change leaders. The Andrew Goodman Ambassador represents Andrew Goodman Vote Everywhere on their campus. The Ambassador undertakes programming to increase student voting on campus with the support and supervision of both the Program Manager and Campus Champion for TWU.
Texas Woman's University receives $1,000 for programming and each intern receives $500/semester from the foundation.
The Campus Vote Project is dedicated to helping students gain access to the ballot and increasing youth voter turnout. Democracy Fellows are an integral part of carrying out voter engagement and empowerment at institutions of higher education across the country.
Every day Democracy Fellows talk to their peers about registering to vote, educate them on election laws and what’s on the ballot, and make sure students at their campus are ready to engage with democracy. Fellows are not only engaging their peers in the next upcoming election. We’ve challenged our fellows to implement programs at TWU that will remain long after they graduate and make an impact on students for years to come.
First semester fellows receive $500, and second-semester fellows receive $750.
