Squads Abroad  offers complimentary “Ambassador Trips” for qualified educators, Key Club or HOSA advisors, counselors, coaches, and school administrators. Ambassadors will participate as a group to experience what student volunteers will do on their Squad. Ambassadors will meet our in-country teams, receive workshops about our programs, volunteer at community sites, engage in cultural activities and stay in our home-bases. Ambassadors return home with the confidence and purpose to effectively lead Squads on campus!
