The Soldotna Chamber of Commerce’s Student Ambassador Program seeks to reach out to those youth who are the next generation of leaders for the City of Soldotna. The program’s activities will introduce the participants to a comprehensive survey of civic education, community service, and youth leadership development, within the Greater Soldotna area as well as sub-themes such as social inclusion, tourism, and entrepreneurship. Activities will focus on building their knowledge and skill levels in these areas. The students will participate in Soldotna Chamber of Commerce workshops, Chamber community service activities, meetings with community leaders, Chamber meetings, and discussion groups and will have opportunities for substantive interaction with each other and with the program’s mentors that will help prepare them for future Soldotna leadership. Any costs will have to be covered by the student but are expected to be minimal and will be waived for those who cannot afford the program. This program is, also, designed to motivate students to think seriously about the role they would like to play and the difference they can make in their community.
All SENIOR Student Ambassadors are eligible for the Soldotna of Commerce Student Ambassador Scholarship- a $250 scholarship based on the completion of all required program tasks. $500 will be awarded if the SENIOR began the program in their JUNIOR year!
All Student Ambassadors will be included in all Soldotna Chamber of Commerce weekly emails, will be featured on the Chamber website, will help run the Student Ambassador Facebook Page, and will receive a graduation awards certificate.
