No child should grow up hungry in America, but one in five children struggles with hunger. That's more than 16 million kids. Share Our Strength's No Kid Hungry campaign is ending childhood hunger in this nation by ensuring all children get the healthy food they need, every day.
By connecting kids in need with nutritious food and teaching their families how to cook healthy, affordable meals, the No Kid Hungry campaign surrounds children with healthy food where they live, learn and play.
We're ending childhood hunger by connecting kids to effective nutrition programs like school breakfast and summer meals. This work is accomplished through the No Kid Hungry network, made up of private citizens, public officials, nonprofits, business leaders and others providing innovative hunger solutions in their communities. These public-private partnerships work together to identify and eliminate the barriers that may prevent children from accessing existing food and nutrition resources.
Through its Cooking Matters program, the No Kid Hungry campaign equips low-income families with skills to stretch their food budgets so their kids get healthy meals at home. Cooking Matters participants learn to shop smarter, use nutrition information to make healthier food choices, and cook delicious, affordable meals.
The No Kid Hungry campaign also engages the public to make ending childhood hunger a national priority, working to shine the spotlight on the crisis and mobilize a powerful movement of individuals committed to bold action. We build partnerships that enlist influential individuals in the cause and advocate policy changes needed to achieve our goals.
The No Kid Hungry campaign is supported by unique programs that raise critical funds and allow our champions to share their strengths in the battle to end childhood hunger. Working closely with the culinary community and relying on the strength of its volunteers, No Kid Hungry hosts innovative culinary fundraising events and develops pioneering cause marketing campaigns that support ending childhood hunger. This work also allows us to invest in community organizations effectively fighting hunger on the local level.
Through the support of Sodexo Foundation, Share Our Strength has created a program to involve college-aged Youth Ambassadors in the fight against childhood hunger by working with one of our state No Kid Hungry partners. 13 Ambassadors will be placed in the following locations: Little Rock, AR; Denver, CO; Hartford, CT; Baltimore, MD; Helena, MT; and Chapel Hill, NC.
The Youth Ambassadors will be responsible for:
Share Our Strength seeks enthusiastic college students to join our program as Youth Ambassadors.
The ideal candidate will have:
Daily access to a car and use of personal laptop and mobile phone required.

Youth Ambassadors will receive a stipend of no more than $1500 plus a potential bonus of $500, as well as a stipend for expenses (gas, parking, mobile phone, etc.). At least 40 hours of work per week required for 10 weeks; YAs may take one flex week.
Youth Ambassadors will report to a national Share Our Strength consultant and a local staff member. Ambassadors will participate in weekly conference calls, complete a weekly report, and attend training sessions prior to the start of work.
Youth Ambassadors are also asked to plan and organize events on their campus throughout the academic year; therefore, rising college juniors and sophomores are preferred. We also prefer candidates who live in or attend school in partner cities.
