About Global Ambassadors
A Global Ambassador is an active voluntary member of the SAS alumni community. As such, an ambassador is a storyteller–combining the mission and key messages of SAS with personal experiences–allowing the most relevant perspectives about the program to be told. Promoting the program and telling your story can take many forms. Here are a few examples:
Share your story out loud: This can be accomplished through classroom presentations, an information table while engaging those who visit, information sessions, coffee house talks, presenting to a club, organization, student group, etc.
Share your story through art and media: write an article for the campus paper, create and share a blog, get interviewed for campus radio, TV, newspaper, or website, create a scrapbook to show at info sessions and tables, do a souvenir based talk, enter in a study abroad photo contest, etc.
Engage in social media: SAS is on multiple social media sites. There are many different Facebook groups to contribute to as well as Twitter posts and YouTube videos. Spend a couple of hours answering questions of those showing interest for the program through these sites, or post your own comments, stories and photographs.
Share your story one-on-one: Some of the most natural and effective promotion happens while talking to someone one-on-one about SAS and making a personal connection. Another way to do this type of promotion is by mentoring someone who will be going through a similar voyage application and financial aid/credit transfer process as you did.
