The Student Ambassador Program is constantly changing and improving in its scope and level of success. One of the newest features of the Student Ambassador Program is the community service component. Community service has been added to promote outreach and extend the effects of the program to the community at large. Projects are scheduled roughly once a month, typically on a Saturday. Applicants should be prepared to participate in up to eight hours of local community service per semester. The goal of our community service efforts is to forge and maintain partnerships between Dominican University of California and organizations in the Bay Area.
Training sessions are held on the weekend following the first week of classes. The first session takes place on Saturday from 9:00-4:00. The second session is on Sunday from 9:00-12:00. Attendance for both training sessions and the first project is mandatory. You will receive a letter during the summer which outlines training locations, the retreat itinerary, and other program details.
