JCC Student Ambassadors are a diverse group of students who serve as leaders on campus. They are liaisons between students, faculty, and staff, and they help answer questions and participate in campus activities. Ambassadors develop relationships with the campus community and network with community representatives. These students are also driven to serve others outside the campus community and participate in volunteer projects.
During their time as Ambassadors, students gain leadership skills and are provided development opportunities throughout the course of the year served.
Student Ambassadors must maintain high academic standards and undergo an application and interview process. In return for their service, students are awarded a scholarship to cover tuition and student fees. Up to 15 students are selected each year.
