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. 

 

INCENTIVE POLICY

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.

Achievement System

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.)

Self-care logo-01.png

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: 

  1. How are you practicing self-care this summer?

  2. What is the importance of mental health to you?

  3. What is something you want to say out loud about mental health that you think isn’t said enough?

  4. 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. 

STEP BY STEP GUIDE 

  1. Create a photo/video of yourself practicing your self-care 

  2. Share photo/video on your social media channels and TAG @hopefortheday AND use hashtags #SELFCARESUMMER #ITSOKNOTTOBEOK 

  3. Fill out a self report form to track your completion of this mission
