Become an Ambassador


Ambassadors are trained volunteers who act as representatives for APF. Our Ambassador program provides a unique and meaningful volunteer experience, allowing residents to play a pivotal role in strengthening our city’s parks. As an ambassador, you will:

  • Expand APF’s capacity to participate in community events across the city
  • Allow us to address needs, and invest appropriate resources, in diverse communities
  • Increase awareness about Austin Parks Foundation and the resources we offer
  • Assist APF in recruiting more volunteers throughout Austin and Travis County


Our eligibility requirements help us ensure that volunteers can successfully represent APF. Eligible ambassadors need to:

  • Have interest in helping strengthen Austin’s park system
  • Be 18 or older
  • Have reliable transportation and ability to bring outreach supplies to events
  • Commit to participation in a minimum of four outreach/tabling events per year
  • Agree to a one year minimum commitment
  • Complete our online application and training process
Remember: bilingual applicants are encouraged to apply
