The Community Engagement Ambassador Program (CEAP) includes a number of developmental components, designed to benefit the Ambassadors engaged in the program. As an Ambassador, you will gain important career skills and deepen your understanding of engaging in outreach with your peers, campus partners, and community partners.
At the beginning of the academic year, Ambassadors will engage in a training program, both virtually and in-person. This program will provide an opportunity for their CEAP cohort to get to know one another and become prepared to serve as an Ambassador.
Regular meetings will be led by Department of Student Engagement professional staff and will feature Brandeis faculty, staff, and community partners as guest speakers. Ambassadors will meet on a regular basis to learn about many related topics, including:
Assessing their own leadership and determining and implementing best steps in their leadership growth
- Translating community engagement and CEAP experience to their own career development goals
- Developing outreach strategies to market community engagement programs to their peers
- Resolving conflict and utilizing strong communication skills in a variety of community engagement settings
