Ambassador Program

  • Join the Rise! 

    Are you passionate about Detroit Public Schools Community District? Are you a District Staff Member, retiree, current or former parent, alumnus, or a supporter of DPSCD? Do you believe in connecting families with DPSCD schools?

    If you answered yes to any of these questions, you are eligible to join the District's Ambassador Program! This cohort of dedicated and enthusiastic members are trained volunteers who serve as District representatives throughout the city to connect families with excellent DPSCD school options and resources.  

    There are great things happening in our schools, help us spread the word! 

    Ambassadors represent the District in the following settings:

    • Community Events
    • Door to Door Canvassing
    • Houses of Worship Visits
    • Block Club Events
    • Telephone Banking
    • Summer Festivals
    • Community Health Fairs
    • Back-to-School Events
    • Much More!

    What is the committment?

    Attend a two-hour training - your time committment after that is up to you! Trained Ambassadors will have access to a robust calendar of opportunities to table or present at events throughout the city, primarily between June -September. Additional volunteer opportunities will included throughout the academic year. These opportunities include: Exam High School Testing Dates and Count Day Reward Events. Ambassadors may participate in as few or as many activities as they would like. 

    Stay tuned for our new 2020 Ambassador Points Program where the number of hours you volunteer translates into points earned to "purchase" exclusive Ambassador swag!
