Community Ambassadors

NEW FOR 2019!

Are you passionate about Access Fund’s work and want to make a bigger impact? Do you love engaging your local community and attending events? Does the idea of representing Access Fund on a higher level excite you? If you answered “yes” to all of these questions, consider becoming an Access Fund Community Ambassador!

Community Ambassadors are rock star volunteers who help Access Fund connect to local networks. Ambassadors play a significant role in raising awareness about our work as well as fundraising through events, outreach, and social media. By serving in their own communities, Ambassadors meet and collaborate with other local climbers, brands, and entities, connecting old and new climbers in protecting and conserving the areas we hold dear.

Want to learn more? Check out the program outline below, the Community Ambassador position description. Applications will be available Monday, April 15th. Applications are due Friday, April 26th, 2019 at 5:00 PM MST.
