Each Ambassador is expected to:
Be a good role model at all times (in person and on social media) to others in: actions, words, deeds, and dress.
Attend 75% of the scheduled Ambassador meetings/activities. Three unexcused absences are grounds for removal from the program. Meetings (outside of program dates) will be tentatively scheduled once a month and shared early in the Spring. Most meetings will take place on Monday evenings at the Vega residence.
This program is part volunteer, part pay. Student Ambassadors will receive payment for successfully completing their ambassador duties of assisting and working with the 5th-8th grade program events. Ambassadors may choose to wave their payment in lieu of volunteer hours. Volunteer hours will be awarded for other assignments such as welcome notes and welcome phone calls.
Approximate breakdown of Payment and volunteer hours:
Working as a classroom assistant, interacting as a role model with the 5th-8th graders during one ‘session’ which will include two classes of either 5th, 6th, or 7/8th graders. Sessions will be either Sunday afternoon or Monday evening.
One session payment will be $30
There are Five ‘sessions’ plus one ball for each season/year = $180 for completion of all sessions.
If you are absent from a ‘session’ you will not be paid for that session.
You may choose to not be paid if you prefer to receive volunteer credit.
Ambassador meetings: 10-14 possible volunteer hours
Welcome notes and welcome phone calls are opportunities for additional volunteer hours
More volunteer hours are available if needed.
Verification of volunteer hours will be provided
If requested, letters of recommendation to colleges or potential employers will also be available upon successful completion of duties.
