Forward Foundation is a New Zealand registered charity that creates development and leadership opportunities for girls through sport.

Our Ambassador Programme aims to increase participation in girls’ sports through identifying aspirational young female leaders and enabling them to inspire those around them to participate in sport. We’re not looking for the best player in the team, we’re looking for girls willing and passionate about kicking goals and helping grow girls’ sport in New Zealand. Ambassadors must be enrolled in a secondary school in NZ (Yr9-13), have initiative and able to communicate with all age groups, and be passionate about the participation of girls sport.

Ambassadors will receive
1. Leadership and personal development opportunities
2. Access to a mentor
3. Forward Foundation Ambassador Leadership award
4. An environment to grow as a person
5. An opportunity to create meaningful change
6. Celebrity status on our website and social media
