This section contains all of the information related to the training schedule and professional development opportunities. For the students that miss a training session, it will be important to review the information that was covered, and then come meet one-on-one with Rachel or Kristin to ensure that you understand all of the information that you missed.
The professional development opportunities are required for all Ambassadors. It’s our hope that your involvement in the Ambassador program will not only help you grow as a student and individual, but will also help to prepare you for the professional world. The professional development opportunities will do just that, with each session touching on a different topic. If you have a suggestion for professional development, you are encouraged to submit an idea using the link to the left.
Mandatory Training Session
Monday, August 29th, 2016
Time: 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM
One of the most important pieces to student effectively representing Messiah is making sure that you are equipped with the correct information. That being said, it is crucial that you attend all of the training sessions and professional development meetings. We will try our best to make them as fun and interactive as possible, but it is really important that you let us know when you have to miss. If you miss a training session, you will be required to come meet with Rachel or Kristin in the Admissions Office in your own time. We want to help you serve our campus guests as best as possible!
October professional development event TBD. Stay tuned!
