Official Field Guide
As an official representative for Hope For The Day, please take a moment to learn about the mission of Hope For The Day and the Agents of Impact program.
With each Agent level you complete, you are able to earn different achievements and perks such as discounts on store items and shipping, customized crewnecks and shirts, and special recognitions by HFTD. (Rules and conditions are listed in more detail in the Field Guide.)
After completing the first 3 Agents of Impact levels, you can continue representing Hope For The Day and reach level 4, the highest level, and participate in additional Auxiliary missions.
You are able to participate in monthly missions and fundraise at your own pace in order to rank up to the higher AOI levels.
For every mission completed, a self report form must be filled out and submitted in order to keep track of your AOI participation in missions.
After you complete all aspects of fundraising and completing seasonal missions you will be able to level up and receive incentives based on your level of participation.
In order to receive incentives, you must complete all requirements to move up to the next level 20 days before the United States federal government's fiscal year.
Q1: January, February, March
Q2: April, May, June
Q3: July, August, September
Q4: October, November, December
This includes filling out and submitting the self-report forms and fundraising the amount required per level, and additional AOI tasks per level.
If all aspects are not completed and submitted before the deadline, or they are completed in the 20 days after the HFTD deadline of the of the fiscal quarter, incentives will be granted at the end of the following fiscal quarter.
As you positively impact your peers and community, each achievement will move you closer to earning incentives as tokens of HFTD’s gratitude. (Specific guidelines are explained in the Field Guide.)
Accomplishing the initiatives helps you rise from a level 1 Awareness Agent all the way to a level 4 Surrogate: someone capable of facilitating mental health education programming as an official HFTD volunteer representative.

Summer Mission: Self-care Summer
WHAT’S YOUR SELF-CARE?
Continuing our initiative to raise the visibility of mental health, this summer HFTD is focusing in on the theme of SELF-CARE; inspiring individuals to take action for themselves and for others.
Create a Video
This summer, share a photo and/or video of yourself practicing self-care on your social media channels! This can be anything from spending quality time with your family and friends, playing music, seeing a new therapist, going for run, taking your dog for a walk, or giving yourself the chance to relax in whatever way you enjoy most!
In your video please answer at least one of these questions:
How are you practicing self-care this summer?
What is the importance of mental health to you?
What is something you want to say out loud about mental health that you think isn’t said enough?
What is the importance of making mental health and self-care practices public?
Together we can show our community the many ways we take care of ourselves, and teach others that taking care of ourselves is an essential, positive part of our everyday lives.
