Student Ambassadors are representatives of the college to act as a first point of contact for prospective students, current students and the community. ACC Student Ambassadors are part of an exciting student organization that works within the office of Student Recruitment and Outreach. The Ambassadors are selected through an interview process and if selected they take part in a high energy, fast paced environment. This environment allows them to utilize their interpersonal communication skills and also assist students and visitors to ACC. They help in the recruitment of future students and represent the college in various functions such as orientations, campus tours, school visits, community outreach, and other events.
The Ambassadors are comprised of current ACC students who are dedicated to supporting and promoting Arapahoe Community College. Students must demonstrate leadership and academic excellence. Applicants should meet the following requirements:
Ambassadors are part of a team, and should always display a positive and cooperative attitude at all times. You will be an educator to not only students, but parents, teachers and administrators so you must be flexible and comfortable with public speaking and one-on-one conversations.
Ambassadors will benefit greatly from their participation in the program. Training and actual experience provides opportunities to develop communication, organizational, public speaking and problem-solving skills. Community outreach will develop a sense of contributing to the community as well as personal and professional satisfaction in efforts to improve the lives of others. Students will also be able to enhance their resume as a direct involvement in the Ambassador program.
Ambassadors will be paid on hourly basis from work-study funds. Ambassadors will dedicate approximately 10-15 hours a week to the program, not including special events or meetings. Students will also be required to commit 10 hours of their time to various community outreach projects throughout the academic year.
All those selected will be given an ACC Polo and t-shirt to help identify their role to the public and these must be worn at all events and during work hours.
“I really gained a better insight on the college and its inner-workings by being a part of it and not merely with innocent student eyes. I've enjoyed the leadership experience in giving tours, and working with my fellow ambassadors!” Heather Curry, Student Ambassador 2010-2011.
