As part of Finding Hope: Kids Help Phone’s Action Plan for Supporting First Nations, Inuit and Métis Young People, we’re creating a Canada-wide network of volunteer Champions and Ambassadors in Indigenous communities and urban centres to connect youth to resources and critical supports from Kids Help Phone and our partners.

Champions and Ambassadors are an essential part of Kids Help Phone. They connect us directly with Indigenous youth in their communities and help guide our programs and services. Because they’re so familiar with their communities, they can also help build awareness of the services that best meet its needs.

  • promote Kids Help Phone’s programs, services and resources
