Volunteering for ASHA can be as simple as being a valued part of our ambassador program – sharing important content that we send out via SocialToaster twice a week. We periodically have other opportunities for people to get more involved in the work that ASHA is doing.
ASHA has integrated the volunteer program with the ambassador program. Ambassadors are willing to start conversations about taboo topics and are passionate about creating a sexually healthy nation. They use social media as a platform for sharing important sexual health information. Want to see what ASHA ambassadors are doing? Check out the two ambassador hashtags.
Our sexual health ambassadors represent over 26 different states and more than 20 countries globally. Our ambassadors are a diverse group – each voice adding a new perspective. However they all share a commitment to sharing important sexual health information
LydiaLydia is currently completing her Bachelor’s degree at Kent State University, with a focus in both Non-Profit services and Human Sexuality. She serves on an advisory council to the governing board of the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC), a nonprofit dedicated to advocacy and support for educators and caregivers of children, from birth to age eight. In 2016, she founded The Wandering Womb, which produces a variety of reproductive health and feminist cards and accessories. More importantly, it has become a platform from which she can disseminate information on sexual health and education and feminist and LGBTQ+ issues. Lydia is also a member of Answer, a national sexuality education resource organization. Her passions in sex education and advocacy include helping parents and educators understand and appropriately support sexual development in children, and making utero-vaginal health information and menstrual products easily accessible.
