ABTS 2020 Student Ambassador Application

2020 ABTS Student Ambassador Application

Step 1 of 3


  • Application Requirements

  • Johnson & Johnson and FHI 360 seek motivated self-starters to serve as Student Ambassadors at the 2020 Alliance Building and Training Session (ABTS), which will take place in Washington DC, USA on September 28-30, 2020.

    The ABTS is a unique learning and networking event for Bridge to Employment (BTE) sites from around the world. During the event, the Student Ambassadors will actively participate in the ABTS by sharing information about their BTE program, partaking in ABTS sessions as well as researching and creating a final presentation. After ABTS, Student Ambassadors will present on their ABTS experience for their local BTE student colleagues.

    Qualified applicants will have:

    - Knowledge of the local BTE program

    - Desire to share information learned at the ABTS with BTE peers

    - Strong communication, public speaking, and organizational skills

    - The ability to work with business leaders, educators, and fellow students

    - An eagerness to learn

    - A curious mind interested in exploring different cultures

    Students who will be in their second or third year of the BTE program in October 2020 are invited to apply. Students who attended a previous ABTS are not eligible.

    ABTS offers an excellent benefit package, including paid hotel, airfare, meal expenses, and passport application fee, student-only sessions, and the opportunity to learn from other BTE sites around the world.

    Top candidates will be asked to participate in a brief interview with the Review Committee in April 2020. Students will be notified of final selections by May 1, 2020.

    Qualified students should complete the following Application Form along with the short answer responses, as well as upload a signed Parent Permission Form and Resume/CV.

    Interested applicants should:

    1. Complete the Following Application Questions. Complete all required information, including responses to the short answer questions.

    2. Upload a Resume/CV.

    UPDATE: Recognizing that many locations have closed school, we are extending the deadline to APRIL 17, 2020 BY 5:00 PM EST. . We also understand that parents may not be willing to sign a consent form agreeing for their child to travel in September. To ensure that students and their parents feel comfortable applying (and to not limit our application pool), we will not require a parent signature on Page 1 of the ABTS Permission Form; photo/comment consent is still required. Parents will be asked to sign the consent form prior to booking travel for the selected students.
