GivePulse Ambassador Program

 

What is the GivePulse Ambassador Program?

Give students on your campus the opportunity to work with the GivePulse team to learn the ins and outs of the platform, gain real-world experience, and further their knowledge of community engagement, service learning, and more. The GivePulse Ambassador Program is open to students with a role in your institution’s community engagement programs or initiatives. 

 

GivePulse higher ed administrators are invited to nominate students to participate in the 2023-2024 GivePulse Ambassador Program cohort. Ambassadors will participate in monthly, 90-minute meetings from October through April.

 

They will be expected to complete GivePulse training modules and other small assignments, which will require an additional 1-2 hours per week. Ambassadors (also referred to as GPA’s) are required to participate in a total of two mentoring meetings with GivePulse staff during the program.

 

We encourage supervisors to allow GivePulse Ambassadors to complete training and participate in meetings as part of their regular work or service hours.

I loved the variety of guest speakers that allowed us to see all that GivePulse has to offer. I would highly recommend the GivePulse Ambassador Program to anyone who is interested in getting involved and in touch with other campuses!

I really enjoyed that the program allows you to create connections with other students. It's crazy how big the world is when you know other people from different universities use GivePulse and have the same reason as me for using it. It was really great to be a part of the GivePulse Ambassador Program and to meet new people interested in community engagement and civic engagement!

I greatly enjoyed the opportunity to learn more about GivePulse and its usage on other campuses. I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to be a GivePulse Ambassador and to help my college use GivePulse more! I hope the next round of ambassadors enjoy it as much as I did.
