Become an Ambassador

Hey, y'all!

Due to safety recommendations brought on by COVID-19, the Ambassador Program has ceased participating in in-person community engagement events for the time being.

However, we are still seeking Ambassadors who can assist us by participating in virtual community engagement events and have expanded our program to also include new opportunities for supporting our park system by assisting with APF programs and special events.

Fill out the application below to find out more about upcoming training sessions or reach out to cynthia@austinparks.org if you have any questions. Thank you for your time!

 

What Is An Austin Parks Foundation 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

  • 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

What are the Benefits?

  • Unique APF merchandise
  • Networking and educational opportunities unavailable to general volunteers
  • Leadership development
  • Advance invitations to volunteer at APF-related events, including Party for the Parks, Austin City Limits Music Festival and more
