Narcolepsy Network Youth Ambassador Program

Narcolepsy Network (NN) is now accepting applications for the Youth Ambassador Program. This is a national program designed to train promising young members of NN to advocate for people with narcolepsy. Youth Ambassadors will learn how to be leaders and representatives of NN all while building friendships to last a lifetime.

Each Youth Ambassador (YA) is expected to complete at least three advocacy activities. Some examples include:
  • Present to a group of ten or more people (through school, support group, religious organization, etc).
  • Hold one community fundraiser for NN (car wash, bed race, walk, bake sale).
  • Attend an advocacy event and publish one article about it.
  • Create one piece of art/poem/journal entry and share it online.
Training for the YA Program will take place on Friday, October 27, 2017 from 9:00 AM-5:30 PM at the Marriott Portland Downtown Waterfront in Portland, Oregon (before the start of the Annual Conference). There is a $99 fee for all participants in the program. Each YA will be responsible for travel and hotel expenses. Lunch will be provided on the day of training. Scholarships are available.
