Student Ambassadors

What do Student Ambassadors DO?
Student Ambassadors are service-oriented individuals who advance the legacy of student leadership on our campus. By assisting with New Student Orientation, Welcome Week, Graduation, and other campus events, Student Ambassadors help their peers get involved and stay connected.

Student Ambassadors are connected to volunteer leadership roles across campus including, serving as peer mentors in our Opening Doors Learning Community, Wellness Center, Men’s Resource Center, Office of Career Development and Experiential Learning, College Discovery, and more!

How can I become a Student Ambassador?
Due to KCC's transition to remote learning, the Student Ambassador program will be accepting candidates on a rolling basis throughout the 2020-2021academic year. If you are interested in applying, please email studentlife@kbcc.cuny.edu with your full name and EMPLID.

What are the requirements to join?
To be eligible to serve as a Student Ambassador, you must maintain a minimum 2.0 cumulative GPA and remain in good academic and judicial standing with the college. There are no other involvement or major requirements to be eligible. All eligible applicants will complete a short interview with a Student Life staff member and 50+ students will be selected to complete the training program.

What is training like?
Student Ambassador Training will be conducted virtually through Black Board. Training will include a handful of pre-recorded presentations, lists of campus contacts, and folders of campus resources. When able, KCC’s Office of Student Life looks forward to resuming in-person training via our annual retreat.

What's in it for me?
Good question! Student Ambassadors are volunteers on campus, and are not paid for their service, however, there are many other benefits! Student Ambassadors meet a large group of students, faculty, and staff from all over campus; our program is supported by faculty, ASAP staff, Student Life staff, Counseling & Health Services, the KCC Chief of Staff, and many more! Beyond networking, Student Ambassadors, through training and volunteer service, develop skill that support their academic and professional goals (i.e. leadership, public speaking, confidence, critical thinking, teamwork, responsibility, and more!!). Student Ambassadors also get some great swag, including bags, shirts, jackets, and personalized name tags. MOST importantly, Student Ambassadors get a chance to help their fellow students, and play a big role in creating a culture of support and engagement on campus.
