Student Ambassadors (SAs) are Technovation Girls Alumnae who have been selected to act as a champion of Technovation Girls in their region. SAs help recruit students to participate in Technovation Girls, and offer support to teams throughout the season. Many SAs help promote Technovation by working with our partners, and promoting the program via social media and local community organizations.
What does a Student Ambassador do?
- Recruit participants to Technovation Girls by hosting events* and explaining the experience of being in the program.
- Guide participants through the Technovation Girls' registration process, by helping students to create user accounts, build their teams, and find a mentor.
- Motivate participants to move through the curriculum, find support when needed, and complete their submission by the program deadline.
- Support their Chapter Ambassador, if there is one in their region.
*Events may be virtual or in-person, according to local COVID guidelines.

Am I expected to mentor a team?
No, there isn't an expectation to officially mentor teams. You can decide to:

- Be a team's official mentor
