Ambassador Training

An elite team addressing the “why” to our MLK day of service.

Train volunteers to ask the right questions to understand the root cause of volunteerism during MLK day of service, and why we should continue to support our communities outside of MLK. These ambassadors will be present at all of our service projects throughout the day, teaching our values beyond a day of service into ongoing sustainable work.
