2021-2022 Mt. Vernon Ambassadors Program

 

Guiding Principles:

  • The Ambassador Program will support the MVCSC Mission and Vision, and serve to further the goals and initiatives of MVCSC.

  • A highly invested and engaged team that believes in its purpose is needed to have a successful Ambassador program.

  • Primary evaluation will be feedback from the participants through comments and surveys.

 

Goals:

  • To create an annual cycle of ambassadors that understand the interrelationships among school programs, how the Mt. Vernon district functions/operates, and as a result, become knowledgeable advocates in the community for MVCSC. 

  • To have attendees be highly engaged in the Ambassadors program and experience a fulfilling use of their valuable time.

  • To have attendees help in recruiting the following year’s Ambassadors cohort.

 

Value of the Ambassador Program:

  • Learn behind-the-scenes details about Mt. Vernon schools, operations, departments, and programs

  • Be a resource with detailed information about Mt. Vernon Schools for your friends and community

  • Meet several other spirited Mt. Vernon community members

  • Be a resource for Mt. Vernon Schools
