Ambassadors are YPAL members who build relationships with non-members and members within the organization. Ambassadors achieve this by being a familiar face at events, being informed, informing others about YPAL programs and events, and advancing diversity and inclusion for all people by strengthening and celebrating differences. Ambassadors also engage non-members and members in conversation, connect them within the organization and at events, and develop their social skills through networking opportunities.
The overall mission of an ambassador is to help non-members and members navigate their interests throughout the organization while building professional networking skills.
