The Mutt-i-grees® Curriculum National Student Ambassadors Program

NOW ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS for the 2017-18 academic year.

Application Deadline: September 18, 2017

The Mutt-i-grees Curriculum National Student Ambassadors Program was established in 2014 to identify and recognize exceptional students who advocate for and help raise awareness of Mutt-i-grees. Selected from a group of students in some of the most effective Mutt-i-grees schools and clubs in the country, Mutt-i-grees National Student Ambassadors spend the academic year working on various animal welfare, humane education, and service learning projects of their choosing, with a goal to inspire other students and community members. Elected Ambassadors receive a $500 honorarium, which is sent to their school to be used for activities, materials, and other expenses incurred in connection with their humane advocacy efforts. The appointment is for a one-year period, but students may apply for additional years.

To apply, please complete the application form below and send your submission to: [email protected].

2016/17 National Mutt-i-grees® Student Ambassadors Year-End Update

When we introduced our 2016/17 National Mutt-i-grees® Student Ambassadors last fall, we dubbed them “Our Formidable Fourteen.” We’re happy to report that they lived up to their billing, and then some.

During the past year, this busy group addressed pet homelessness in ways both large and small. No matter what approach they took, their combined efforts advanced the Mutt-i-grees message in their communities and helped hundreds of dogs, cats, puppies, and kittens find responsible, loving homes.

Meet the 2016/17 National Mutt-i-grees Student Ambassadors

They range in age from 7 to 17. They hail from California, Connecticut, Kentucky, New Jersey, New York, and Oklahoma. The group includes 11 young women and 3 young men. And when you do the math, they’ve already racked up a collective 30 years of volunteer service, mostly in animal welfare.

They’re clearly getting a head start on changing the world, and we happily welcome them to the ranks of our elite and accomplished Student Ambassadors. You’ll learn more about them and their MUTTS* Clubs in the coming months, but here are a few words of introduction. We’ve listed them in alphabetical order.
