About Truth Initiative and truth®:

Truth Initiative is America’s largest non-profit public health organization dedicated to making tobacco use a thing of the past. We speak, see and spread the truth about tobacco through education, tobacco-control research and policy studies, community activism and engagement and innovation in tobacco dependence treatment.


truth® is the longest running and most successful national tobacco prevention campaign for youth and young adults. When it comes to smoking prevention, truth® doesn’t hate. We instigate. We’re not here to criticize or preach. We’re here to arm everyone—smokers and non-smokers alike—with the tools to make change.


What we are looking for:

We’re looking for 10 passionate individuals who are out to make tobacco use a thing of the past. The truth® Ambassador program is a year-long leadership program for one of the most successful public health campaigns in history. Ambassadors will work with our staff to create sustainable projects that educate their peers on the harmful impacts of tobacco.

This position requires long-term dedication and occasional travel about 6 times a year (covered) to keep you up to date on all your ambassador duties.

  • Work hard – Creating a strategic and sustainable project takes a lot of commitment, but it’s totally worth it. You’ll have the opportunity to get out of your comfort zone and pick up new skills along the way.
  • Be a team player – You’ll work hand-in-hand with other ambassadors on some program elements in order to create successful projects.
  • Be passionate – Your individual and partnered projects have the potential to create change and improve people's everyday lives. Let your passion for change lead you.
  • Inspire – Through creative problem-solving and hard work, you will spread the truth while also giving others an opportunity to be agents of change.


 Participants will receive a stipend and financial support for their projects.

Location: Washington D.C.

 

Responsibilities:

Create: Expand a previous idea/project you’ve done by designing and implementing a sustainable project that aligns with one of our three priority issue areas:

Engage: Ambassadors will put on five gatherings in Ohio, Indiana, Tennessee, California, and Georgia. At each of these gatherings, 10-25 people will be trained on being youth and young adult tobacco prevention advocates on their campuses and in their communities.

Mobilize: Activate and mobilize peers for truth®’s 2019 annual day of action.
