The Terrapin Teachers Student Ambassador Program is a yearlong internship, which offers students the opportunity to become more involved in the recruiting efforts of the program. Ambassadors are expected to represent Terrapin Teachers at outreach events (First Look Fair, Maryland Day, orientations, etc.), assist with the logistical details for recruitment events, provide support for social media sites, distribute flyers and other promotional materials, and serve as a confident leader and role model for new Terrapin Teachers students.
For students to qualify for the Student Ambassador Program, they must first complete TLPL 101. They must also: maintain a 2.75 GPA; have knowledge of the Terrapin Teachers initiative; and demonstrate excellent communication skills, dependability, tolerance, maturity, and professionalism.
The student ambassador program is co-led by Dr. Anisha Campbell, Associate Director of Terrapin Teachers and Jahaira Dixon, Program Management Specialist.
