Society ambassadors gain valuable skills to increase their preparedness and
confidence as they transition from a community college student to a workforce professional or 4 year college student.
Ambassadors participate in a wide range of networking opportunities with
professionals in various fields to help explore career and college options. Ambassadors broaden their horizons
through dynamic cultural events and activities, and share memorable experiences
with their peers, while building strong connections with influential
supporters, and with other students who share their
values and commitment. They engage in meaningful
community outreach and acquire insights for personal development, which will
help distinguish them from other graduates in the job market and college application pool. Ambassadors also receive
a stipend of $1,000 for their participation and service for the semester in
which they participate.
