Become a HUG Ambassador

If you love HUG, consider volunteering for our most important job — helping others find friends and letting the world know why we need to include people with special needs. That’s what you’ll do as a HUG Ambassador. You will be our representative in the community.
.
All HUG Ambassadors receive a special HUG t-shirt, HUG swag and HUG flyers to give to anyone you meet who may need help making friends. Plus, you can even star in your own “mini-commercial” about why inclusion is so important. We are so proud of all our HUG Ambassadors!
