Having conversations about menstruation can be hard. No matter where or who you are, we want to help you confidently lead conversations about menstruation and women’s empowerment.

BECOME A PAD PROJECT AMBASSADOR

The Pad Project is excited to announce our new Ambassador Program! For years we have been wanting to grow our team and our Ambassador Program will allow us to create an engaged and supportive community. Ambassadors for The Pad Project will join us to continue the fight for menstrual equity by launching donation drives in their communities, fundraising for new initiatives, and working to destigmatize periods by fostering dialogue and hosting events. We have heard from so many of you—from all over the world—who share a passion for menstrual equity and justice. We want to expand The Pad Project community and invite you to join our team!

The application period for the 2020-2021 Ambassador Program is now closed. We invite you to sign up for our newsletter to stay updated on our work and to learn more about the 2021-2022 Ambassador Program. 

Application Process

We are looking for individuals from around the world with a passion for menstrual equity who want to help us expand the conversation surrounding period equity, ending period poverty, and empowering menstruators worldwide.

We are launching two tracks for our Ambassador Program: the Student Ambassador Program (SAP) and the General Ambassador Program (GAP). For both programs, domestic and international applicants are encouraged to apply. 

Once selected, Ambassadors will spend one year working  with The Pad Project. This year, both the Student Ambassador Program (SAP) and General Ambassador Program (GAP) will run from August 2020 to August 2021. Ambassadors will be organized into cohorts based on geography. Each group will have a mandatory virtual orientation and training session, as well as three mandatory meetings throughout the year to discuss ongoing projects. Beyond these meetings, Ambassadors will be able to meet with their Regional Advisors and fellow Ambassadors as frequently as they want. At the end of the year, ambassadors will have a chance to re-apply to the program.

The application period for the 2020-2021 Ambassador Program is now closed. The application for the 2021-2022 Ambassador Program will be available in June 2021.
