The goals of the Trainee Ambassador Group (TAG) are to connect trainees across Maternal and Child Health (MCH) Training Programs, provide opportunities for trainees to develop leadership skills, and strengthen the link between the Health Resources and Services Administration’s Maternal and Child Health Bureau (MCHB) and trainees. We are looking for motivated trainees who are interested in further involvement in the MCH Training Network through the volunteer role as Social Media Ambassador.
Social Media Ambassadors will develop marketable skills, including social media coordination, project management, communication, decision-making, and virtual networking. Trainees serving in the role of Social Media Ambassadors will spend up to two hours per month on projects of their choosing, which may include:
- Posts to MCH-related social media platforms (Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter)
- TAG Article Club announcements, posts, and moderated discussions
- “Time with TAG” spotlights on the MCHB/Division of MCH Workforce Development website (https://mchb.hrsa.gov/training/tr_words.asp) highlighting the Social Media Ambassador experience in your MCH training program
- Meetings with the TAG on a national level
The Social Media Ambassador position is highly flexible, creative, social media-focused, trainee driven, and program specific. The TAG will launch the Social Media Ambassador position this summer, with nominations accepted on a quarterly basis. The time commitment is until graduation (for current trainees) or at least one year (for current or former trainees), based on the time of selection.
