If you are participating in a federal internship this summer, consider being a Federal Service Student Ambassador. This experience is a great networking opportunity and you can get paid for promoting your internship experience!
FEDERAL SERVICE STUDENT AMBASSADORS PROGRAM OVERVIEW
GET PAID FOR TALKING TO YOUR FRIENDS ABOUT YOUR FEDERAL INTERNSHIP! BECOME A FEDERAL SERVICE STUDENT AMBASSADOR!
The Federal Service Student Ambassadors program is designed to increase interest in federal service on college and university campuses through developing a group of passionate student advocates who actively promote public service following their completion of a federal internship. Having already completed a federal internship, student ambassadors are in a unique position to speak to their peers about federal service. Through planning events, networking sessions, and meetings with key faculty and staff members, ambassadors raise awareness of the incredible opportunities and benefits of federal service as well as develop creative and innovation approaches to spread the word about public service.
Are you looking for an opportunity to develop your professional skills while sharing your passion for public service? This program might just be the experience you are looking for! As a Federal Service Student Ambassador, you will have the unique opportunity to lead a major outreach effort on your campus, create an academic and professional network of contacts, write articles for newspapers and magazines, and coordinate with student organizations on campus—all of which contribute to your professional development!
Throughout your ambassadorship you will receive regular feedback and assistance from a Partnership coach as well as other ambassadors. To jumpstart your professional development, you will attend a dynamic two-day training in Washington, DC along with the other 2010-11 ambassadors. Additionally, you will receive a $2,000 stipend for your service.
