De La Salle Collegiate Student Ambassador Program
Student Ambassadors at De La Salle Collegiate are the best representatives of the student body and the school.
Ambassadors will interact and engage prospective students, alumni, and friends of De La Salle while also promoting the school and its programs.
They provide information and insight about the school as part of Admissions and Advancement activities, special events, community service projects, and speaking engagements.
Ambassadors must understand the Lasallian Mission, and have the following personal qualities:
- A sincere respect and appreciation for their De La Salle experience and comfort in discussing it.
- A desire to learn.
Ambassadors must possess good speaking skills, and enjoy interacting with a variety of people.
Ambassadors will have opportunities to improve their leadership skills in a variety of settings.
