Canva Ambassador Programs
Hey there, Canvanauts! Thea here, your trusty Canva Verified Expert, and today I have something super exciting to share with you. Canva is not just an incredible design tool; it’s also a vibrant community of creators, educators, and ambassadors. In fact, there are a variety of communities and programs that you can be a part of. And guess what? There’s a shiny new program that’s just been added to the mix—the Empower Canvassador program. But more on that in a bit.
Overview of Each Canva Program:
First, let’s take a whirlwind tour of each of the fantastic communities and programs at Canva and you can see how each one might be a fit for you and your experience:
- Canva Design Community: This is where it all began, back in 2016. A community for all Canva users to discuss everything and anything design-related. Share your designs, get feedback, learn new tricks, and stay updated with what’s new in Canva.
- Creators: A space for creatives from around the world to create, publish, and earn from their designs on Canva.
- Education Creators: This one’s for all the teachers out there! Create, publish, and earn from educational templates on Canva.
- Canva for Teachers: A dedicated community for educators to empower them to use Canva as a tool to educate.
- Canva for Nonprofits: A community for nonprofits to learn how to use Canva to communicate their mission and make an impact.
- Canvassadors: These are the elected leaders across the different Canva communities. They inspire, educate, and connect communities.
- Empower Canvassador Program: The newest addition to the Canva family! Empower Canvassadors are content creators who inspire and uplift people worldwide, especially within the Canva community.
- Canva Verified Experts: And last but certainly not least, we have the Canva Verified Experts, leaders, and experts in their communities with a passion for teaching others how to make the most out of Canva’s features.
Empower Canvassador vs Canva Verified Experts Programs
Now, you might be wondering, “How does this new Empower Canvassador program compare to the Canva Verified Experts program?” Great question! Here are some key differences:
Canva Verified Experts: this program is Invite-only. CVEs receive money 45-day trials, the ability to beta test things, a Canva Expert’s team account and extra support via Slack.
Empower Canvassadors: don’t get 45-day trials but rather they get 30 days, some beta opportunities, and their support via a Discord channel.
Both programs require an NDA, so shh, top-secret stuff happening here!
