About the Program

As a dedicated individual, you can play a very real and direct role ensuring that the millions of farmers and workers around the world can earn a decent income, and build stronger, more resilient communities.

Setting up a Fair Trade Ambassador Program on your campus brings people into the fair trade community and creates leaders who can help to spread the fair trade message across the country. It is designed to support the fair trade leaders of today and empower the fair trade leaders of tomorrow by helping motivated individuals build capacity within their communities.

*Please note that program content is currently designed for university and college campuses. However, anyone is welcome to download the folder and adapt its contents.

    Program Package for Campuses

    As places where ideas are shared, built, and launched, university and college campuses are excellent community spaces to engage with fair trade. We hope that students, staff, and faculty passionate about fair trade can use our program package as a tool to independently create a successful Ambassador Program on their campus that builds momentum for the fair trade movement.

    Below you will find the link for a folder containing a program guide, action plan sheet, recruitment kit, and a training kit. This should help get you started organizing your Fair Trade Ambassador Program without a hitch, whether you are a student or a member of staff or faculty. To begin, read the program guide included in the link below and then begin the process of self-administering your training.
