CELF STUDENT AMBASSADOR PROGRAM

CELF Student Ambassadors (SAMs) receive training in sustainability issues, gain hands-on experience and develop interpersonal skills while making a difference in their own community and communities around the globe. Ambassadors build relationships within their schools and with students from other high schools while representing CELF at local, regional and national events.

In addition to gaining the opportunity to present at numerous local events this spring, Student Ambassadors are eligible to represent CELF at two national conferences over Earth Day weekend. Click on the hyperlinked event names below for further program information.

2014 STUDENT AMBASSADOR FEEDBACK:

"I'm so grateful to be part of CELF! Joining the SAM advisory board is one of the best decisions I've made in high school. Thanks again for all the opportunities!"

"The speakers, conventions, local events, galas, and even trainings are all very informative and continue to expose SAMs to the endless possibilities to incorporate sustainability into our lives."

"I loved how interscholastic this program was, and how organized it was. Patti (CELF) does a great job of getting things together and getting things done."

"I had a really great time as a SAM this year! I will definitely be continuing my involvement and work towards spreading further involvement into my school more."
