Learn the Basics™ Ambassador Certification Program

The goal of the Learn The Basics™ Program is to encourage young women & young men to “learn the basics” about teen dating violence and equality in relationships in our crusade against adult domestic violence.

As a Learn the Basics™ Certified Ambassador, you would become certified through the Beginning Over Foundation to lead seminars that play a valuable part in domestic violence prevention right in your own school or community.

Not only will you have the opportunity to present this program to your peers, but you will also, upon certification, become qualified to certify your peers in becoming their own Learn the Basics™ Certified Ambassador. This is an opportunity to create other leaders who wish to step up and take part in this preventative & educational mission.

Roles and Responsibilities:

It’s easy! We would like to see the Ambassadors committing 2-4 hours a week in their efforts. A computer with Internet access is required, as is a self-starting attitude.

  • Commit to a 1 year term

  • Hold 2 fundraising events per year, one of which can be online

  • Perform local awareness-building activities

  • Liaise with local media as relevant (sample letter included with resources)

  • Respond to emails from other local supporters who want to connect and work together to make a difference

  • Spread the word via social media
