Community Service Ambassadors

Community Service Ambassadors commit to serving 50 volunteer hours at a local non-profit over the course of the semester.

Make a difference. Gain experience. 

Leadership and Service Center staff members will help students identify a non-profit based on the student’s specific interest area and it will be their responsibility to work with that non-profit to determine an appropriate project to complete during the year. In addition, Community Service Ambassadors will also engage in social issue discussions with their fellow service peer leader cohort weekly in the Fall. 

Serving as Community Service Ambassador is a great way for you to:

  • Connect to a local non-profit in the Columbia area for an extended period of time
  • Get experience in the non-profit sector while completing over 50 hours of community service (which you can use towards completing GLD)
  • Be a part of a cohort of students completing a similar experience and bonding over your shared experience

Community Service Ambassadors will be expected to:

  • Attend all training dates listed below
  • Collaborate with local agency to determine service needs
  • Serve as an ambassador of the University
  • Maintain consistent communication with the Leadership and Service Center staff

Participate in end-of-semester performance review with supervisors

  • All LSC Leader Training
  • Weekly Service Leader Cohort 
  • 50 hours of service with assigned non-profit organization


Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
