Ambassadors help programs:
- Develop strong and efficiently. Ambassadors are trained in the Elements of Effective Practice, utilizing this technical knowledge in their work and in effect, training their colleagues in the process.
- Intensify volunteer recruitment efforts. Ambassadors ensure programs implement best practices; screen and match mentors; and build public awareness, yielding more robust recruitment efforts
- Enhance or create systems to support marketing, recruitment, match support, mentor/mentee training, or program development. Regardless of program size, having a skilled employee develop or revamp these efforts is a fantastic opportunity to recharge your program
