Certified Johnny’s Ambassadors Trainers

Starting in January 2022, Johnny’s Ambassadors is forming a grassroots team around the U.S. to educate parents and teens about the dangers of today’s high-THC marijuana for youth. As a Certified Johnny’s Ambassadors Trainer in your community, you’ll be teaching a one-hour, science-based class on “The Dangerous Truth About Today’s Marijuana: The Harms of Youth Marijuana Use” in schools, libraries, police stations, restaurants, community centers, coalitions (or just about anywhere you can get someone to give you a free space!), or virtually. You do not need to be a “speaker.” You will receive all the materials you need and learn exactly what to say. The license is FREE for volunteers and only $299 for individuals who wish to use the materials in their work.

Laura presented an information session on how to become a Certified Johnny’s Ambassadors Trainer:


What is the definition of an ambassador? An ambassador is “a person who acts as a representative or promoter of a specified activity.” So, Certified Johnny’s Ambassadors Trainer are the people and organizations who are working to spread the message of the harms of marijuana on youth. Specifically, youth marijuana use can lead to addiction, mental illness, and suicide. This training will expand our impact and education exponentially, far beyond what I can do by myself. That’s why our nonprofit was named Johnny’s AMBASSADORS. Will you help us?

The Dangerous Truth About Today’s Marijuana: Johnny Stack’s Life and Death Story, will be part of the suggested participant materials for “homework.” You can approach a local business to sponsor copies for your attendees. Our local Freeway Ford dealership gave us $2500 to buy books!
