As a SHAD Fellow, you are our biggest advocate and resource to ensure that SHAD is no longer Canada’s best kept secret. Become a SHAD Ambassador and help us reach another record-breaking year of applications and ensure a legacy of SHAD continues at your school.
Because of our Ambassadors, we were able to spread the word about SHAD in communities all across the country. Here’s the 2018 Ambassador program by the numbers:
326 Active Ambassadors
190 Presentations Given
21 Events Attended
2,500+ Applications received to SHAD 2019
“Attending SHAD is unlike any other experience on the planet. Getting the chance to tell other students about my SHAD experience and how special it was is a great privilege. I would encourage any SHAD to become an Ambassador; it is one way to give back to SHAD and helps create an unbelievable experience for another person."
“In my mind, I know that I would never have discovered SHAD had it not been for the efforts of some hardworking ambassador in my exact position; I want to make sure to no person misses out on an opportunity like this. It's my way of saying thank you to SHAD for the extraordinary experience and the ambassadors who got me interested enough to apply in the first place."
It’s never too early to start promoting SHAD for next year. Get out there and talk to grade 9 & 10 students in your community about applying to SHAD 2020.
*Please note: SHAD 2019 is the last year grade 12 students can attend the program. Thus, when promoting SHAD 2020, this information is most relevant to students currently in grade 9 or 10. Students currently in grade 11 will unfortunately not be eligible to apply to SHAD 2020.
Work with your teachers to host a SHAD info session at your school AND at nearby schools – share your SHAD experience and inspire the next cohort of Fellows!
