Education Abroad Ambassador Program

About the Education Abroad Ambassador Program

The Education Abroad Ambassador Program was created several years ago as part of an increased effort to promote education abroad on campus from a student perspective. Education abroad returnees are ideal resources for current North Central College students interested in studying abroad. Having studied, lived, and traveled abroad, returnees represent an experience that many students are considering but, for a variety of reasons, have not yet explored. As an Education Abroad Ambassador, you will have the opportunity to highlight the variety of programs North Central College offers, while sharing your own life-changing study abroad experience.

You will be trained for this position and will be expected to fulfill various responsibilities, including, but not limited to: 

  1. Make five (5) classroom presentations and one (1) team/club/organization presentation
  2. Represent your program at and assist with our annual Education Abroad Fair
  3. Participate and engage in our office's social media efforts

Three trainings are scheduled early fall semester for you to learn about the Ambassador program, our education abroad programs, and to practice your presentation. Upon completion of your Ambassador duties you will be paid, so your time and efforts are not only appreciated but rewarded. Education Abroad Ambassadors also often act as mentors for perspective education abroad students.
