The Student Ambassador program is a prestigious student leadership initiative that provides our students with volunteer experience, mentoring, and professional development opportunities. The goal of the program is to include students in recruitment and retention efforts at our institution, while providing them with opportunities to "lead from within".
To become a general volunteer, please email Experience@NWpolytech.ca
Student Ambassadors fulfill vital roles in our in-house and community events, such as new student orientations, new student recruiting initiatives, campus leadership events, internal committees, and ambassador-led activites. We are here to support your student-led initiatives!
Ambassadors develop educational, professional and personal goals, making participation in the program ideal for career development purposes. While growing your organizational and leadership capacities through public speaking, networking, dialoguing, and mentorship, you'll also be contributing to your campus community. And, of course, Student Ambassadors are encouraged to bring forward ideas to optimize the student experience!
As a representative of our institution, we expect you to demonstrate professionalism and commit to a minimum of 20 hours per semester, along with participation in meetings. Of course, we'll also want to capture your photograph, so smiles are essential!
As an Ambassador you'll have the opportunity for personal development while you pursue the co-curricular credit. Along the way, you'll participate in fun activities, receive the occasional t-shirt, and learn the ins-and-outs of our institution.
