AMBASSADOR PROGRAM OVERVIEW
The Riverkeeper Ambassador Program is a community-oriented, grassroots, environmental program designed to raise awareness about the needs of the Hudson River and its tributaries, and the drinking water supply of New York City and the lower Hudson Valley. Ambassadors are considered informal representatives and advocates that fight for Riverkeeper’s cause by either raising funds, increasing membership, hosting events, volunteering or making presentations to community organizations or schools to educate students and citizens about watershed issues and empower them to get involved.
Would you like to be one of our super-volunteers, taking Riverkeeper’s mission and education to new places? Our team will presented a webinar in April 2015, Watch the webinar here. This follows up on our inaugural Ambassador Workshops that trained 61 Ambassadors in Albany, Esopus, Beacon, Ossining and Manhattan over the winter.
What is an Ambassador?
Riverkeeper Ambassadors are made up of Riverkeeper Sweep leaders, citizen scientists, community partners, and concerned citizens who wish to support Riverkeeper and activate their communities to help deliver a swimmable, fishable and clean Hudson to future generations
As an Ambassador, at somepoint you will be asked, “What is Riverkeeper?” and “How did you become involved with Riverkeeper?” This webinar is designed to guide you through answering those questions succinctly and adequately. Learn more on our blog here.
Riverkeeper values the commitment and passion of our volunteer and Ambassadors. We truly believe that “knowledge is power” and the more our Ambassadors and volunteers learn, the more effective we can be together.
