So to start with, what are the primary roles of a student ambassador?
- To publicize a program or cause they are committed to among the students in their College/University or among any other communities they are in.
- They should make sure that whatever new information they get regarding the program must reach the students of their respective institute and affiliated institutes.
- They should also be able to answer any doubts the students might be having about the program and persuade them to take part in the program/cause in different ways.
Who can apply?
People who enjoy interacting with different people on a regular basis or someone who is trying to break out of their shell to become a more confident person. Also, people who love challenges and enjoy learning about new things might equally enjoy being a student ambassador. So if you have a desire to learn it doesn’t matter even if you are shy and timid!
Requirements might vary depending on the program. But we have listed below some of the requirements that are common for every student ambassador program. So make sure you make a note of them!
- A desire to learn – of course you won’t be familiar with all the things you will be required to do! But it doesn’t mean that you cannot learn them.
- Quick grasping – someone who can understand how things work can be very helpful for student ambassador programs
- Time management skills – Dealing with classes, grades and tests, an ambassador is also required to spend some time on the program which is only possible if you can manage time efficiently!
- Good communication skills – Almost 90% of the programs require you to interact with people and get things done smoothly. So good communication skills are the key.
- An open mind- Some programs might require you to interact with people coming from different cultures and backgrounds and hence having an open mind can be helpful.
So, I hope you took your time scribbling them or typing them on your Notepad because it’ll be absolutely worth it if you become a student ambassador by adapting these qualities!
