Why should I become a Brembassador?
- Save Lives: Brembassadors have the platform to save lives by educating women about their breast health and inspiring them to get screened early and often. As Brembassadors often give presentations to underserved populations, it is unlikely that these populations would otherwise have access to the life-saving education that Brembassadors provide.
- Essential to Brem: Brembassadors provide education, access and empowerment central to Brem’s mission and culture. We could not achieve our life-saving work without the dedication of our Brembassadors.
- Form Connections: Brembassadors will have the chance to forge personal connections with people from a variety of backgrounds and gain a better understanding of how different communities have been personally affected by breast cancer.
- Personal Development: Brembassadors will develop their public-speaking and interpersonal skills. They will also gain confidence and self-empowerment by saving lives while forming deeper connections to the community through direct, impactful service.
