Youth Ambassador Program

The Central Texas Food Bank’s Youth Ambassador Program provides children, teens and students with opportunities for sustained engagement in our mission to end hunger in Central Texas. Youth Ambassadors create, advocate, volunteer and fundraise on behalf of the Food Bank, growing in leadership alongside the organization. The Youth Ambassador Program brings youth and families together and provides a flexible roadmap for youth who are looking to fulfill school, faith community, scouting or other requirements or who are simply pursuing independent development and learning.


  • Children (age 5+), teens and college students within the Central Texas Food Bank’s service territory
  • Work with a committed adult mentor (elementary and middle school students) who is willing to assist
  • Learn: get educated about hunger by taking a tour (all ages) or serving at a volunteer shift (ages 8+)
  • Lead: develop and complete a project to raise food and funds, create, educate, or advocate

  • Complete an annual reflection and report (submitted online)
