AN OVERVIEW OF THE
GHS AMBASSADOR PROGRAM
Grapevine High School is proud to sponsor the Ambassador Program. The GHS Ambassador Program is composed of two award levels: The Community Service Ambassador and the Community Scholar Ambassador for the classes of 2016 and 2017. For the Class of 2019 and beyond, the program will have these two award levels: Community Service Ambassador and Community Service Ambassador with Distinction. The class of 2018 will be able to choose between Community Service Ambassador, Community Scholar Ambassador or Community Service Ambassador with Distinction. Each of these award designations is explained in the Program Guidelines.
Membership in the Ambassador Program is strictly elective, student-initiated and student-handled. There is no mandated requirement for GHS students to perform community service as a part of their course of study over their 4 years of high school nor is community service completion a requisite for graduation purposes.
AMBASSADOR PROGRAM PURPOSE AND MISSION
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has. — Margaret Mead, Anthropologist
The Ambassadors program encourages students to step outside of their everyday experiences to expand their understanding of the world around them. These volunteer experiences can change a perception once held, expand a narrow view, or discover a newfound passion that could lead to a future calling or vocation. Further, these experiences can support self-growth that can lead to a stronger sense of purpose and dedication. Understanding what volunteerism means to you and how it has changed you or your locus of influence will demonstrate maturity, initiative, and social responsibility. Prospective employers and/or universities are seeking out individuals with this level of integrity and ambition that are prepared to change the world. Dare to take risks and embark on an amazing life-long adventure. Join the Ambassador Program and become a volunteer. Change the world starting with your commitment.
