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 (any age), have initiative and able to communicate with all age groups, and be passionate about participation of girls sport.

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

The role of an Ambassador involves getting stuck in to our Winter and Summer Sports Carnivals (new for 2019 - wahoo) and attendance at the Ambassador Conference and other annual events (a.k.a doing making meaningful impact in the community and hanging with your new mates). Ambassadors may also choose to attend events as Forward Foundation Ambassadors or promote the Foundation to their school and community.

An Ambassador will
1. Attend the Forward Foundation Ambassador 2 day Conference- 25-26 January
2. Actively involved in our Winter Sport and Summer Sport Carnivals- 17 April & 2 Oct
3. Summer and Winter Carnival Planning Meeting
4. Attend our Breakfast Club workshops - 24 March, 26 May, 28 July, 22 Sept (8am-10am)
5. Positively promote of the Foundation through school and/or community
6. Volunteer at a local community, school or club events of your choosing e.g School Give it a Go Days, Sports Tournaments, Fun Runs

Ambassador Conference
The conference is an opportunity for Ambassadors to participate in leadership and personal development activities and hear from inspirational speakers. Check out the photos from 2018 Ambassador on Facebook ( or instagram @forwardfoundation). Conference attendance is mandatory for Ambassadors and those travelling from outside of Christchurch may need to fund their own travel costs.
