Is the Ambassador Program for me? 

There are many clubs and organizations at LA&PS for students to join, but perhaps you are looking for a different experience and want to be involved with the Faculty as a whole where you will be directly interacting with future and current students, professors and the public. If that's what you're looking for, then the LA&PS Ambassador Program is perfect for you! 

Trained to Win

Don't worry about being a new Ambassador. The Centre for Student Success staff will provide all ambassadors with a helpful training session and handbook to make sure you get off on the right foot.

Duties of an Ambassador

  • Workshop Assistant
  • Other opportunities will be announced throughout the year

Don't worry about sticking to a set schedule; only sign up for the events and shifts that work for you.
