Service-Learning Ambassadors

2019-2020 Service Ambassador Program - Open positions available for the upcoming 2019-2020 academic year


Service Ambassador Program

The Service Ambassador (SA) program has been designed to assist students and student organizations with the creation of and participation in co-curricular service activities. The service activities will happen outside of the classroom and therefore will not be attached to any specific curriculum.  Instead, these activities will be designed to educate students on general social issues in Southwest Florida, engage them in active, participatory events with others, and provide them the tools they need to continue service independently. All Service Ambassador Events will be planned by student leaders (SAs) and fall under one of the following categories or “Impact Areas”:

  • Disability Services
  • Hunger and Homelessness Services
  • Youth Empowerment Services
  • Minimum Qualifications for Selection  

If you have questions contact Lisa Paige at from your eagle mail account using 2019-2020 SA Application in the subject line.
