The Secretary of State’s Office launched the Student Ambassador Program for high school students. The Ambassador Program is a leadership training program for high school students in the 10th through 12th grades that encourages civic participation and voter registration.
Students who serve as Ambassadors promote civic engagement, voter registration, and volunteerism in their schools by speaking to classes and assemblies, hosting voter registration drives, and volunteering in their communities. The goal of these activities is to educate high school students about the government and show them how to become engaged through voter registration or volunteer opportunities.
The program prepares Ambassadors for this work by providing students with training materials and guidance for public speaking, working in a team environment, time management, problem solving, and professionalism. Students will have the opportunity to develop these skills as they participate in the program.
