Student Leadership

Fuel Up To Play 60 is led by students, for students. It all starts when they create their Student Dashboard account to track activities, participate in challenges, and earn points to achieve Ambassador status. Reach the highest level for a chance to represent Nevada at the national Student Ambassador Summit!

Program Advisor

Along with any adult educator or staff at the school, parents can also become Program Advisors (PA).  As a PA, you will recruit student leaders, receive information on local and national contests, and get the latest news on trainings and resources. To get started, work with your student team on activities to implement from the Playbook.
