    Ambassador Program 2020 - 2021

    As our District responds to the impacts of COVID-19, it is now more important than ever that we prioritize community outreach to Metro-Detroit families and ensure they are aware and connected with our District schools, programs, and resources. The Ambassador Program is a cohort of passionate, enthusiastic, and committed volunteers who represent the District at wide-range of community engagement opportunities to support both recruitment and retention initiatives. This year we are excited to launch our Virtual Challenges which provide Ambassadors with fun and creative ways to safely promote the District via social media and social distancing best practices.

    We know our staff, students, and parents (like you!) are nothing short of exceptional. Help us spread the word!

    Who can be an Ambassador?

    • District Staff Member
    • Current District High School Student (New this year - earn service hours!)
    • Retiree
    • Current or former parent
    • Alumni

    Why sign up to be an Ambassador?

    • Be Part of a Community: This is an excellent opportunity to build relationships with District staff, parents, alums, and current students. Ambassadors are invited to come together (virtually!) for Ambassador community get togethers to meet one another and build a sense of community.
    • Explore Detroit: Once we are able to re-engage in public settings, the Ambassador Program offers a great opportunity to explore new neighborhoods, visit a park you've never been to, or attend an unfamiliar faith-based site. Promote the District and enjoy the perks of the D at the same time!
    • Support Detroit Families: We all know the feeling of wanting to talk to someone when making big decisions. For families trying to navigate our city's vast school system, you could be the difference between a parent being overwhelmed and a parent finding the perfect school fit for their student!
    • High School Student Service Hours: Attention students, all Ambassador Hours you complete will count towards your required service hours for graduation!
