After ANYTOWN Ambassadors

After ANYTOWN™ Ambassadors are youth leaders who serve as advocates and representatives for change. Ambassadors model NCCJ's mission to fight bias, biogtry and racism.

Ambassadors are involved with NCCJ year round and participate in leadership training. They serve as facilitators for NCCJ events such as the Youth Leadership Conference, ANYTOWN, and ANYDAYs.

They also play a key role in supporting our Brotherhood/Sisterhood Citation Award Dinner.

 

2015-16 Ambassador Meeting Schedule:

Below are this semester's Ambassador training dates. A reminder with a sign-up sheet will be emailed out one week before each scehduled meeting, and if necessary, you will be notified as soon as any changes are made. All trainings will be held at the NCCJ Office (713 N. Greene St in Greensboro) unless otherwise noted.

Ambassadors must RSVP on time for every meeting. Not only does this help us prepare materials and the space, it also impacts food orders if a meal or snacks will be served.
