Student Ambassadors play a critical role at Teach For Canada by leading our on-campus efforts to recruit committed teachers for northern First Nations schools. Student Ambassadors demonstrate a commitment to education equity, organisational aptitude, and other Teach For Canada teacher qualities. By volunteering as a Student Ambassador you will raise awareness on educational inequality and the strength of northern First Nations and recruit prospective teachers who fit our teacher selection criteria.



Professional Development

Student Ambassadors will be leading Teach For Canada campus awareness initiatives on educational inequities and the strength of northern First Nation communities.

An Engaging Forum

All Student Ambassadors will convene at our Student Ambassador Forum where they will hear from First Nations’ community partners, discuss awareness-raising strategies, and collaborate on Teach For Canada’s broader goals.

Make a Difference

We are excited to exchange, share, and grow with each Student Ambassador as we strive to provide more opportunities to students in northern First Nations communities.

“I was looking to take what I was learning in my education degree and apply it. We were learning about the inequalities that Indigenous people face but it didn’t extend to doing the front line work. So if you’re looking to grow your professional skill set, if you’re looking to learn more about what you’re reading in textbooks, I think Teach For Canada is the place you should be.”
