Brand Ambassadors

These ambassadorships focus on helping us spread the word of World Ride through in-person interactions and social media platforms. There will be a focus on using Instagram, however, if someone wants to focus on in-person interactions or another platform, we are open to your creative ideas. Brand ambassador can expect to:

  • Participate in an initial kickoff meeting, receive monthly check-in emails with updates on the project, and offer virtual “open houses” several times per year where they can check in with World Ride leadership and get help with anything and/or ask questions.
  • Maintain a strong Instagram presence and repost/share World Ride’s content on your own Instagram at least two to four times per month.
  • Content includes things like our fundraisers, stories about the women we support worldwide, local events taking place in the US, sponsor appreciation posts.
  • Create content for World Ride (take photos, create reels, etc.) that meets our brand guidelines and can be shared on our account; create two to four content items per year
  • Share World Ride with their bike communities (local group rides, Facebook bike groups, bike shops, etc.)
  • Potentially available to support events in their area (Sunset shreds, etc.)
  • Chance at winning prizes through fun challenges throughout the year
  • Join World Ride’s community forum
  • Attend kickoff meeting for the year and one to three check-in meetings
  • Optional: Host a WR fundraiser 🙂
  • Brand ambassadors qualify for $100 off a World Ride trip and 20% off World Ride merchandise.

Lead Ambassadors

These roles have more time commitment than brand ambassadors but are rewarding and help you gain relevant experience in fundraising, content creation, and building community. Being a lead ambassador includes:

  • Checking in once a month with the World Ride board.
  • Attending an initial kickoff meeting, further time commitments mentioned with each role below.
  • Lead ambassadors will qualify for $250 off a World Ride trip and 25% off World Ride merchandise.
  • Chance for quarterly rewards.

Trip Ambassadors

  • Commit to bringing 7-9 people (including self) on one of World Ride’s trips in 2023 (all folks need to attend the same trip). Trip options include: Nepal, Peru, Guatemala, Lesotho, and Botswana
  • Trip organizers are required to create social media content while on the trip (Instagram stories, posts, reels, etc.) and share this content with
  • World Ride with the intent that World Ride can use it on their social media pages and/or website to promote trips in the future. You will be asked to upload your videos and photos to a shared Google Drive.
  • Trip organizer will be reimbursed with significant trip discount and potential flight reimbursement depending on the final headcount of their trip and upon delivery of content
  • People applying for this role are required to submit a video explaining why they feel they would be a good fit for this role and how they plan to create content for World Ride. If you are selected to move on to the final round, you will be asked to complete a video interview with members of World Ride’s board of directors. During this final round interview, you will receive additional information about the opportunity.

Social Media Content & Creation Lead Ambassadors

Looking to gain experience managing a social media page and/or creating content? Already familiar with a program like Buffer, using Instagram to create more advanced content like reels, or have a creative side and are looking to learn? This ambassadorship includes:

  • Following World Ride brand guidelines
  • Meet one to two times per month with the Social Media Board of Directors member and other members of the World Ride forum and social media teams to learn about what’s going on and to plan for upcoming posts

How is this role different from a brand ambassador? This role is more focused on creating and managing the content that is directly on the World Ride’s social media channels based on current news and events. There is a greater time commitment and more interactions with other members in World Ride. This position can be geared more towards people who don’t use their personal social media accounts often, but want to help create content for World Ride’s pages.

Fundraising Ambassadors

Fundraising ambassadors directly help keep World Ride going! Supporting our amazing 501(c)3, non-profit organization helps amazing women around the world! Funds raised will directly go to supporting women by: funding bike libraries, sponsoring guide and mountain bike instructor training (PMBIA), sponsoring bike clinics, and so much more! This role includes:

  • Completing at least one virtual or one in-person fundraiser per calendar year, aiming to raise $500 over the course of the year
  • Receiving prizes from World Ride sponsors to use in your fundraisers as prizes
  • Willing to share photos/videos from fundraisers with World Ride to share on their social platforms.
  • Time commitment: one to two months of planning and executing of fundraiser

Fundraisers that ambassadors have completed in the past include local Movie Nights using World Ride approved women biking films, Bike 101 for Ladies at local shops, and Miles for $$$ (riding a certain number of miles based on how money was raised over the course of one month).

Several virtual training sessions available at the beginning of the ambassadorship to learn more about World Ride and how to complete successful fundraisers. Additional fundraiser support materials will also be provided.

Additional perks available once fundraisers are completed!

Online Community Forum Ambassadors
