AsianPassion Ambassadors are individuals who wish to expand AsianPassion’s goals and global marketing. They start and lead their own chapters in their community or school.
While the AsianPassion Program’s main goals are to provide free English tutoring for non-native speakers residing in Asia, Ambassadors reach out to their local area to help find tutors, not students. These tutors, who must speak English fluently, will also take part in tutoring students in Asia.
The Ambassador role is for those outside of Asia who want to get involved, and their role functions similarly to chapter directors, with the only exception being that they are finding tutors. Ambassadors have a strong focus on outreach, expanding AsianPassion in many locations.
Interested in becoming an Ambassador for the AsianPassion Program? Follow the steps below!
Decide where you want to start your chapter
Some Ambassadors may find it easier to start a club with students within their high school. However, gathering members outside of school is completely acceptable as well. For example, if you regularly meet up with a local volunteer group, starting a chapter with them may be a good idea.
Find interested members
In order to submit an application to become an Ambassador, you need to have at least 10 people (including yourself) who are ready to commit to APP.
Submit APP application
Once you have found enough people to begin your chapter, apply using the form above to be considered for an interview.
Attend an interview
Shortly after submitting your application, you will receive an email with information regarding your interview. Only the chapter founder needs to attend.
Get adult approval (skip if unnecessary)
Next, you need to contact any adults necessary to approve of your chapter. If you are starting a club in your high school, this may mean asking for a teacher sponsor and/or your principal’s approval.
Have members submit membership form
Once your chapter is approved, have your chapter’s members fill out a membership form that will be shared with you to be considered as an official chapter member. The chapter founder does not need to fill out this form.
Have members sign up to be tutors
After filling out the membership form, chapter members should apply to become a tutor with APP using the form on our website. It may take some time for them to be matched with a student.
Continue to advertise your chapter to others and host in-person and/or virtual events of your choosing. APP may issue tasks to Ambassadors, but the majority of the time, you will be running your chapter by yourself. Ambassador meetings will occur biweekly, where chapter founders will meet on Zoom with the APP Board and discuss progress.
Host events, do tasks, attend meetings

Q: Can I start a chapter even if I live outside of the U.S.?
