Ambassadors for Children | Frequently Asked Questions

What exactly does an Ambassador for Children do?  

First Focus Ambassadors for Children are committed advocates focused on federal policy issues affecting children.

As an Ambassador for Children, you will receive First Focus policy briefings, action alerts, and our Ambassadors-only newsletter. We can help you take action to ensure kids’ issues aren’t forgotten.

Do I need to be a policy or advocacy professional to participate?

You do not need to be a policy professional to become an Ambassador for Children. We welcome parents, educators, and any community members who want to make a difference for kids.

Does it matter where I live?

Ambassadors for Children can be based anywhere in the U.S. As an Ambassador for Children, your audience is the people who are elected to represent you at the federal level: your House representative, your Senators, and the presidential Administration. We’ll connect you with their contact information and update you on how they vote.
