Unleash Potential: Discover The New Student Ambassador Program!

In this session you will discover a newly created Student Ambassador program that engages district students as advocates, leaders, and philanthropists. This initiative exposes them to leaders at the local and state levels, involves them in meaningful work, and provides high-profile opportunities in the community, enabling them to become champions for public education.

Student Ambassador Program

The Student Ambassador program is a program that builds advocates for public education, cultivates leaders within the school district, and fosters philanthropic endeavors for meaningful impact. High school students from Edmond Public School actively participant in monthly meetings, where they engage with district, community, and state leaders. These students take part in various committees and events, such as speaking at public gatherings, organizing fundraisers, conducting food drives for the district, volunteering in schools, and advocating for public education on social media. The program also includes the election of officers from each high school and encourages collaboration among students across different schools through the committees focused on Philanthropy, Advocacy, and Leadership.

Program Objectives:

  1. Leadership:
  • Provide students with opportunities to explore and develop their unique leadership styles.
  • Equip students with essential leadership skills.
  • Actively apply leadership skills through committee work, public speaking engagements, interaction with peers from other schools, and community involvement.
  • Enrich students' learning experiences about leadership through guest speakers from district and community leadership at monthly meetings.
2. Advocacy:
  • Help students craft compelling personal brands to champion public education and support Edmond Public Schools through the Edmond Public Schools Foundation.
  • Teach students how to effectively advocate for Edmond Public Schools through attending public events, active participation on social media, and spreading the Edmond Public Schools Foundation message in their schools and communities.
3. Philanthropy:
  • Instill a deep appreciation for community support and its impact on education.
  • Engage students in fundraising campaigns to acquire knowledge about philanthropy and become philanthropists themselves.
  • Contribute to the advancement of education and foster a sense of empowerment and responsibility within the community.
  • Become future leaders, advocates, and philanthropists to advance public education and Edmond Public Schools.
