NZ Olympic Ambassadors are inspirational role models living the Olympic Values. They engage with youth through school visits and presentations. Olympic Ambassadors work mainly in primary schools, targeting ages 8 – 13 years. In sharing their sporting, Olympic and life experiences they deliver key messages and examples to inspire and motivate youth to live the Olympic Values through sport and life in general; to participate and achieve; and to be the best they can be.

As the programme is targeted at primary schools and NZ Olympic Ambassador visits are in high demand, visits to primary schools will be prioritsed. Olympic Ambassador visits are subject to availability and not all requests will be able to be fulfilled.

The NZ Olympic Ambassadors programme requires that schools can demonstrate student learning around the Olympic Values as part of the Olympic Ambassador’s visit and bookings will be prioritised accordingly.

Please read the "Olympic Ambassador Programme Guideline for Schools" prior to the visit as it contains important information about what to expect and what to do when an Olympic Ambassador is visiting your school. It also includes ideas for curriculum-related, pre- and post-visit activities for you to do with your students. These activities will help them understand the Olympic Values (a requirement of our programme) and get the most out of the visit. The guidelines are available on our website (click here) and will also be emailed to you when a visit is booked.

There is no cost to the school for having an Olympic Ambassador visit.
