Through our Ambassador Leadership training program, ambassadors will learn a number of different facets of being a leader. Ambassadors will be asked to juggle a number of responsibilities, including maintaining a high GPA at school. Therefore, ambassadors will learn project management skills along with setting SMART goals that we will help them track and achieve by the end of their ambassador year.
Ambassadors are required to reflect on their week and therefore will grow both as writers and as empathetic individuals. This will help them develop their connections to community, fulfilling their responsibility of giving back as they volunteer with different causes suggested by their mentors.
Networking skills are necessary for all leaders as is a network for anyone looking to become a leader. SPEAK Mentorship will provide you with a network that will be an access point for internships and jobs. It is important that ambassadors take advantage of this during their high school years so they make the best decisions for college, major, and career in the future, maintaining their networks for more direct pathways towards success.
Graduates of our Ambassador Program have worked very hard to get through the program. Therefore, we reward our graduates with application assistance, helping them with understand the best colleges and majors that meet their interests and financial situation. We also help successful ambassadors with their personal statements. We want to make sure ambassador alumni are successful into and through college; therefore, we serve as a support point during the college transition period, even offering different scholarship opportunities depending based off of their accomplishments.
Alumni are forever part of the SPEAK mentorship network, and will always have access to the listed opportunities posted by those in our network. Finally, we want to make sure ambassador alumni continue to grow and develop, and we will have countless opportunities for them to serve as liaisons to future ambassadors, speakers for our speaker series, and network connections as we continue to grow our SPEAK mentorship network.
