Werklund Undergraduate Ambassadors Team

Getting involved

Looking to build your leadership skills, get involved with your faculty, and promote your Bachelor of Education? Join our Ambassadors Volunteer Team!

Join faculty and staff at university events

As an Ambassador Volunteer Team member, you'll have the opportunity to represent the Bachelor of Education and Werklund School of Education at great events, from Open House to Student for a Day. Provide peer-to-peer knowledge, support Future Students in their transition into university, and network with faculty, instructors, staff, and fellow Bachelor of Education students.

Expand your resume and enjoy lunch!

All Ambassadors will receive a letter of thanks from the Associate Dean to add to their portfolio, and Werklund swag! We'll also ensure a bevy of lunches and snacks while you volunteer at various events!

Next steps

Applications to be a part of the team are submitted via the Better Impact UPE Ambassadors Volunteer Team site!

As a part of this process, you'll need to complete Occupational Health and Safety training. Once you've been accepted, we'll add you to the Elevate program to ensure that you are recognized for your involvement.

Volunteers for the Ambassadors Team commit to:

  • Support at least one event as listed
  • Attending the onboarding session
  • Adhering to event best practices
  • Adhering to all University of Calgary and Werklund School of Education conduct and professionalism policies
