Otonabee College Ambassadors
The Otonabee College Ambassadors are the first point of contact in the College Office for students who are having difficulties, feeling lost, or looking for help. Their primary focus is on one-on-one support of students, and assisting the professional staff in the college office. They are also responsible for coordinating student volunteers with the College Office. This team of students also creates a strong sense of community among students in the college through networking with faculty, staff and student groups in order to promote participation in workshops, events and informal gatherings. They will also contribute to the planning, implementation and evaluation of college events and activities. This team of students work in the office from September until April. There is also one position available in the college for the summer months (May to end of August).
