Invitation to High School Seniors to participate in the new United Way of Washington County’s Student Ambassadors Program

The United Way of Washington County is excited to announce the creation of the Student Ambassadors Program. Students who are in their senior year from Avella, Bentworth, Burgettstown, Canon McMillan, Chartiers-Houston, Fort Cherry, McGuffey, Peters Township, Trinity, and Washington High Schools are invited to participate. The purpose of the Student Ambassadors Program is to offer opportunity for high school students who are seniors to express their ability of leadership, passion, and service by creating projects that will impact their community.
The high school senior is asked to produce a project that demonstrates real community impact that exemplifies the United Way of Washington County’s mission statement, to unite people, resources, and organizations to improve lives in Washington County.  The project must be tied back to the United Way of Washington County’s vision of a community where everyone achieves their human potential through education, financial stability, and healthy lives. We are encouraging the students to be creative with their ideas for projects that demonstrate community impact while raising awareness and/or funds for the United Way of Washington County! 
By participating in the Student Ambassadors Program, not only would he/she be helping our community but will also become eligible to be nominated for the annual Student Volunteer Award. The Student Volunteer Award, which includes a scholarship of $500 to the awardee, will be presented at the Annual Campaign Celebration on June 17, 2021. Students with the most unique and impactful projects will be considered with one student selected for this award.
