AMBASSADOR PROGRAM

Become an Ambassador Today!

Hoop Hero is a platform that connects volunteers to philanthropy projects around the world through our Ambassador program.  Ambassadors undertake an initiative and become “project directors” with the responsibility for the direction, execution and management of their initiative.  Hoop Hero helps amplify the voices of the Ambassadors and attract volunteers.  Volunteers can search for opportunities to serve communities in need and engage in a journey of personal growth by volunteering in different parts of the world.


Hoop Hero will help Ambassadors identify children with need globally and create initiative and awareness to make a difference.  Hoop Hero will then provide a platform for Ambassadors to create their own mini campaign page which both Hoop Hero and the Ambassadors will promote to their online and offline network to seek support and volunteers.
