The Side-Out Ambassador Program presents opportunities for students to receive recognition and scholarship funds, encouraging them to continue a life of setting and achieving their goals. Ambassadors raise funds for breast cancer research through a Dig Pink® initiative while learning important lessons about health, community and perseverance.
The ambassador program is open to individuals focused on uniting their communities, inspiring those around them and fundraising for The Side-Out Foundation. No matter a student’s age, we encourage participation in The Side-Out Ambassador Program as an opportunity for leadership, personal growth, and community service.
Any Ambassadors who are high school juniors, seniors and college-aged students (including those who don’t play volleyball) are eligible to receive scholarship funds for college as a reward for their commitment to the cause. Multiple scholarships are awarded each year and range from $1,000 to $3,500.
Those who do play volleyball are automatically eligible for one of three special awards. Together, Side-Out and the American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA) offer awards to Side-Out ambassadors who are also involved with the sport of volleyball. The Side-Out/AVCA National Dig Pink® Award is given to three ambassadors who demonstrate extraordinary commitment to the sport and to their community.
