ECHO’s team of volunteer Ambassadors are the heart of our mission. While this role looks different for everyone, in general, our ambassadors are people who:
Learn. Learn about hunger, poverty, and ECHO’s mission.
Share. Raise awareness about hunger issues by sharing your passion.
Invite. Connect others to our mission of equipping small-scale farmers with agricultural resources and skills.
Give. Raise funds for this work by becoming a donor and inviting others to join the mission.
Thank you for your willingness to share the ECHO story.
This site is intended to give you information you might need to thoroughly share with others about ECHO, whether you need a 30 second “elevator speech” or more information for a larger presentation.
