Our Ambassador Program



The benefit of Florida’s Hometown USA Program is to instill in young people to give back to their community. The students in this program are elementary through high school. If children are involved in volunteering at an early age and are taught to show love and concern for others, it will stay with them forever.  In our program, we stress to the youth to take time to visit and give of their time to make someone else’s day a little brighter. The students have shown a compassionate and caring attitude by placing a high value on helping other people.

Over the past 34 years, our volunteer program has continued to grow. We always need more volunteers! We are pleased to introduce our Ambassador Program. We have students from throughout the state of Florida that have a desire to volunteer.
