Welcome to the Dream Ambassador program! We are so excited for you to join our community of Dream Ambassadors!
Step 1: Purchase your Dream Ambassador Advocacy Kit (Optional)
Get all you need to be a Dream Ambassador in this beautiful kit! The box includes:
- Printed marketing brochures
- Printed Incentives Tracker
- Printed profile card for first sponsored student
- Exclusive Dream Ambassador gear (t-shirt and hat)
- Printed copy of the book Her Own Two Feet
If you choose not to purchase the Dream Ambassador Advocacy Kit, you will still have access to all the digital tools described below and will receive access to your exclusive sponsorship page and student profiles after you’ve completed Dream Ambassador training.
Step 2: Access your digital tools
Every Dream Ambassador has access to our digital resource library, which includes everything you need to start strong as an ambassador. To access the resource library, you will need the password included in your welcome email.
Step 3: Attend the online Dream Ambassador onboarding
To set you up for success, we have developed a training that will provide you with the ins and outs of the program, expectations, keys for ethical representation, and your action steps as a Dream Ambassador. Once you have completed the onboarding session, you will receive access to your exclusive sponsorship weblink and electronic student profiles. The date and time for the next Dream Ambassador onboarding session is included in your welcome email. If you are not able to attend, you will need to watch the recorded session on the digital resource page.
Step 4: Join our private Dream Ambassadors Facebook group
This community is a place to gather and connect with like-minded individuals who are committed to putting their hands and feet to work in the service of others. We will be sharing monthly tips and tricks, brainstorming with each other about what is or is not working, and inspiring each other to persevere while doing good. Click here to make sure you have joined the group.
Step 5: Get to know your first student
Each student has a personal story, so take a moment to learn one student’s name, age, favorite subject or hobby, and their dreams. This is who you will be advocating for first. Throughout the week, take a few moments each day to pray for this student and their family as God leads you. If you don’t know what to pray for, you can access our Sponsorship Prayer Guide for some ideas.
Step 6: Read our “Where to Share” resource
It is a powerful thing to invite others into the transformative journey of student sponsorship. You are not only changing a student’s life who is waiting for a loving sponsor, but you are also changing the sponsor’s life as well. Here is a resource to help you discover where to share about sponsorship through Africa New Life whether it is one-on-one, online, in a group or at your church.
Step 7: Create your personalized Dream Ambassador game plan
Now that you know where to share about Africa New Life’s sponsorship program, it’s time to create a personalized game plan. How is God asking you to advocate for students who are waiting for sponsorship? Download our Dream Ambassador Roadmap to get started!
Step 8: Be a force for change by advocating and asking
Advocating is about sharing your heart and passion for sponsorship, then giving others an opportunity to join this transformative journey of child sponsorship.
We want to set you up for success, so we have created these amazing tools and resources to help support you as you share about sponsorship with others. Click to learn more about each resource:
In this password-protected library just for Dream Ambassadors, we have copies of our sponsorship brochures, an “About Africa New Life” handout, and more to assist you as you share student sponsorship with others.
Videos are a great way to spark a conversation. Share them on your social media channels, through email, or gather a group and watch them together. Use them to share why you are passionate about the ministry and about student sponsorship.

Social media is a great way to spread the news about student sponsorship. In our Resource Library, we have photos that you can click on to share on your favorite social media site.
