Last week I joined the U.S. Pain Foundation Ambassador Program. The work the organization does for people with chronic pain is hands-on and at a government level. There are endless opportunities for you to support the organization with the time you have available. I have to learn how to do screenshots on MAC OS quickly, I’m attending a Webinar on Thursday.

Dear Junior Ambassador,
I would like to personally welcome you into the U.S. Pain family! By joining our Pain Ambassador Network, you are taking action and choosing to help us advocate on behalf of the pain community. Our goal is to support you and provide you with the tools needed to raise awareness.
The U.S. Pain Foundation is a nonprofit organization created by people with pain for people with pain. We want the experiences you have as a junior ambassador to be full of fun and excitement. Our mission is to educate, connect, empower, and advocate for pain warriors as well as their families, caregivers, and friends; the hard work and dedication of ambassadors like you is what allows us to fulfill this mission. We greatly appreciate the time, energy, and passion that you have chosen to dedicate towards raising awareness!
To thank you for your commitment as a volunteer, we will be sending you a starter package in the mail. We encourage you to use these resources to empower yourself.
As a junior ambassador, we would also like to offer you the opportunity to be promoted to be an official ambassador for U.S. Pain. Below, we have outlined the simple steps you can take to bring your awareness work to the next level.
- Complete three tasks on behalf of the U.S. Pain Foundation. These tasks can be done at your own speed. Here are some examples:
- Host an information/awareness table (contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information)
- Hand out U.S. Pain awareness resources
- Attend/listen to volunteer webinar updates
- Submit an advocacy letter (only one advocacy activity counts towards becoming an official ambassador)
- Participate in Pain Awareness Month (PAM) activities
- Host a fundraiser benefiting U.S. Pain
Getting credit: Each time you perform a task, take a photo or screenshot if possible and submit your participation via the designated form provided in the ambassador toolkit for the specified activity. Once you have completed these three tasks, you will then become an official ambassador for the U.S. Pain Foundation.
