What does an ambassador do?

The primary function of the Promise ambassadors is to represent Seattle Colleges and the Seattle Promise on and off campus. As an ambassador you will share your story, talk about student life and discuss your academic experiences with a variety of audiences. This can take many forms; you might be asked to speak with alumni, donors and friends of Seattle Colleges during fundraising events; network with distinguished leaders from Seattle Colleges and the community such as college presidents, city leadership and local business owners; or give an interview to local print or online media.
