When will I know if I’ve been accepted into Twitter Student Ambassador as a Student Leader?

We are currently launching the Twitter Student Ambassador Program, as a pilot program for the 2022/2023 academic year. At this time, we are accepting applications for Student Leaders of schools based in North America until September 15, 2022. As part of the pilot, we will only be accepting 20 student groups to start and will open up the program to more groups in the near future.


What if I don’t want to be a Student Leader anymore?

All good! If something comes up and the commitment is no longer manageable, you can let us know – we have an exit process. In addition, if you violate any of our policies or Code of Conduct we may discuss off-boarding before the one-year mark.
