Why join the team

Students want to study abroad but most never make it happen. It’s not because they don’t want to travel, but because they either don’t know where to start or don’t know that there’s a program that matches their interests and schedule. That’s where you come in! We believe in the power of travel to transform lives. By serving as a LeadAbroad Ambassador, you’ll connect students on your campus to opportunities to travel!

What’s in it for me?



1 student = $200





2  students = $200 + $400 = $600






3 students = $200 + $400 + $600 = $1200

If all this talk about Cape Town adventures gets you pumped to travel next summer, we would love for you to join us. On March 1st, you’ll have the opportunity to choose to double your earnings per student to put towards the program fee of any LeadAbroad 2019 program. You choose: extra dough or somewhere to go!

How to Succeed

#1. Get to know LeadAbroad.

LeadAbroad is an organization based in Atlanta focused on planning epic experiences abroad. They will help you find a perfect summer study, volunteer or intern abroad experience that matches your interests and your schedule. Summer 2019 programs range from 2-5 weeks and take place in Cape Town, Greece, Costa Rica, Paris, Rome and Barcelona!”

You can also explore “Why LeadAbroad” on our website and this quick video! Also check out our Instagram feed to get to know our students and locations!

#2. Chat it up.

Our ambassadors make it easy to study abroad by making announcements where students already congregate. You will be paid $25 when you upload the interest list from any sorority chapter announcement on your campus.


1. Get permission to make an announcement at chapter.

2. Talk for 3 minutes.

3. Pass the clipboards.

4. Collect the clipboards later.

5. Submit the names of students who signed up for more information.

Done. $25 in the bank.

But don’t stop there! Think about other organizations on your campus that you can speak at – new member meetings, sports teams, fraternities, medical organizations, philanthropy groups, etc. This is the fastest and best way to get the word out! Even though you aren’t paid for announcements outside of sororities, you’ll find it is the easiest way to spread the word and any students who joins us abroad from one of your announcement clipboards, means hundreds of dollars in your pocket!

More announcements = more students = more money!

Check out JoJo’s announcement here. Make it your own. Jokes encouraged – not required.

Interested students can submit their info on your custom page or you can have them write their info down on this sheet! Then upload photos of the sheets on your Basecamp project and we will take it from there!

#3. Do it for the ‘gram.

The more the merrier. Use Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat or any other social networks to share it with your crew. This post is a great example from our past ambassador! Be sure to tag us @LeadAbroad and use the #LeadAbroadLife and #studyabroad.



#4. You’ve got mail.

Send some inbox inspiration to your friends, organizations and those group members who never did their part of the project. Because slackers need study abroad too.

Inbox inspiration

Wait – tell me how this works again….

Sure. Take Taylor here. 

Sunset sail in the Barcelona harbor

Taylor spoke at 3 sororities, chatted with friends from her dorm and classes and got 3 students from her school to sign up for this summer!  She gets paid immediately for the pitches and in the spring for the 3 students. Taylor already has a killer internship lined up for this summer so she opted for the cash money.


$25 x 3 pitches = $75

Suitcase  +  Suitcase  +  Suitcase   = $1200 cash



Now let’s look at Cammie.

Cammie and a camel

Cammie also got the word out on her campus through organizations, GroupMe posts and Instagram stories. Cammie also got 3 students from her school signed up for this summer! Cammie decided she didn’t want to miss out, so she decided to join us on DIRECT Cape Town this summer. The $1200 that she earned turned into a $2400 discount so she pays $500 for the DIRECT Cape Town program fee!

Suitcase  +  Suitcase  +  Suitcase  =  $2400 discount

Think about one moment during your travels that truly made an impact. Then, hold on to that moment though everything that you do. One pitch, one chat, one encouraging text, one post – they could all be the ONE thing that leads someone else to have a life changing summer! – Kelsey Schmidt

Watch the videos and check out the website!  The more you know about the programs, the easier it will be to talk about them to your friends! – Cammie Cook

Go out there and crush it!  Know that you have an entire team supporting you and reach out to us if you need any help. Some students just need to know they are supported and that this incredible leap of faith will change their life just like it changed yours! – Taylor Brock

Get chatting with people the moment you walk into the door. Not only will they be more excited to hear your killer announcement, you will meet awesome new friends along the way! – Sophie Leopold
