Why become a college Ambassador?

Serving as an Ambassador allows you to share your story with high school students while serving as a role model for the Scholars. You will receive training through an experiential learning course at the University of Nebraska which will provide a research-guided foundation in peer-to-peer mentoring. Cross-age peer mentoring (older student with younger student) is known to increase self-efficacy, academic performance, and connectedness of mentees while enhancing interpersonal skills of student mentors (Garringer and MacRae, 2008).
