Program Mission

The Student Ambassador Program recruits qualified students to represent Allan Hancock College in a number or initiatives, serving as role models and mentors to all students. This group of trained student representatives provides the campus with an additional resource of student leaders to assist new and current students in the admissions/registration process, represent the college in outreach efforts, assist in campus wide events, and promote the image of Allan Hancock College, including appearing in college promotional materials. Student Ambassadors represent a group of positive, enthusiastic, and well-informed representatives of the student body of Allan Hancock College, who are interested in working with faculty, staff, and students to promote the college’s programs and services.

Student Ambassador Role

Student Ambassadors are trained to provide assistance during peak registration periods, participate in visits to area high schools and college fairs to present the benefits of the community college experience, provide campus tours to visiting schools and groups, assist during special events and college-sponsored activities, and participate in focus groups and panels, as needed, to provide information for improving student services and information dissemination.

Student Ambassador Qualifications

Student Ambassadors must have successfully completed a semester at Allan Hancock College (ESL credits can apply) and earned minimum GPA of 2.0. They must be currently enrolled in at least six credits per semester and plan to devote at least two semesters to the Student Ambassador Program, while maintain an overall GPA or 2.0 or higher. Preferred qualifications include the completion of a Personal Development or Leadership course, New Student Orientation, prior leadership and/or community service experience, demonstrated skills in interpersonal communications, and ability to effectively relate with people of diverse cultural, social, and educational backgrounds.

Science Instructor, PVHS

One of the obstacles that I had to overcome was breaking the language barrier. Another obstacle I faced was financial hardship. As I completed my classes at AHC, I had to work in many part-time jobs such as a math/science tutor for the college tutoring center, night shift clerk for a local grocery store and vegetable cooling. Also, the MESA program and the STEM Center, not only supported me academically through resources such as access to books and computers, but also through working with students with interest in mathematics, science and engineering.
