Youth Leaders Prepare for March for Babies

Posted by Volunteers

National Youth Council Members with National Ambassador Josh

Across the country, youth volunteers are gearing up for March for Babies season by organizing big ticket concerts on campus, hosting bake sales, and leading carwashes in order to reach their March for Babies fundraising goal. The March of Dimes National Youth Council and Collegiate Council Ambassadors are no different! 

The National Youth Council is comprised of 19 college students throughout the country who are strongly dedicated to our mission. Through their hard work, they provide support to national & chapter staff, national service partners, and youth volunteers throughout the nation. Each year, the National Youth Council sets a fundraising goal for the year. This year’s council has set their goals high by planning to raise $15,000, collectively, for March for Babies, $5,000 more than the last year’s goal! Each member has begun preparations for March for Babies events and activities in order to reach (and possibly exceed) this goal.

The Collegiate Council Ambassadors are college volunteer leaders who are dedicated to year-round activities to support the March of Dimes mission in their local community. The Ambassadors have started the semester strong by registering for March for Babies and recruiting team members to walk and assist in the fundraising efforts. In preparation to their March for Babies virtual training meeting with staff, they have started developing goals for the semester. Each is working hard in conjunction with local partners and/or National Service Organizations, both on campus and in their community, as well as local March of Dimes chapters to host fundraising events and activities.

Do you want to or know someone who wants to further raise awareness and funds for the March of Dimes by becoming a leader for March of Dimes Team Youth? Nominations are now open for those interested in joining the National Youth Council and/or becoming a Collegiate Council Ambassador. Nominations must be made by a March of Dimes staff person, National Youth Council Member, or advisor. Students applying to the Council must be freshman through juniors in college as of September 2011, and Ambassadors must be freshman through seniors in college as of September 2011. National Youth Council & Collegiate Council Ambassador Descriptions and nomination information can be found online at:

The deadline for nominations is February 14, 2011.
