About the Student
Ambassador Program

The Student Ambassadors program was designed to help students realize their vision of their future. Providing tools from local business owners to help them establish valuable connections, and teach them the current workforce skills needed to pursue their educational and professional goals with a head start, all while being a mentor and colleague to other students! They are the faces of the community events under the gift of giving Foundation.

Students Alternated every week to various businesses for five weeks learning the ins and out of different fields of the business world. Students earn up to 15-20 hours of community service.

The program takes place in the Fall and Spring of every year.
