Be An Ambassador
We are excited that you are interested in becoming a part of a special student team that serves as our school’s public face! Our VMBS Ambassadors are an important part of the welcoming and inclusive environment we provide visitors. Ambassadors serve various functions, from greeting guests at our Welcome Desk to guiding guests on VMBS campus tours and assisting with and representing the school at special events.

Successful applicants will be expected to:

- Give regularly scheduled daily tours, walk-up tours, and special group/VIP tours.
- Represent a diversity of interests within the DVM program.
- Be available to give tours and work at the front desk at least one Saturday each semester.

- Reply to email and/or text messages promptly, as this is how we request ambassadors to lead special tours.
- Use professional phone skills to answer any questions asked over the front desk phone.
- Professionally represent the VMBS at special functions and outreach events as requested.
Selected ambassadors will receive training, an official polo, pay for hours worked, excellent experience to put on a resume, and a great opportunity to promote the school.
Interested students should contact the lead ambassador at firstname.lastname@example.org. Finalists will be interviewed for selection to join the ambassador program.
Again, we are excited you are interested in joining the team and look forward to reviewing your application.
