I mentor first time college students to help guide them to being succesful.
As a student ambassador I set up meetings with first time college students and help them with finding resources on campus, work on study skills, and find ways to help them be successful. I'm also still a college student and go to class in between my work schedule on campus.
Although, you do not have to have a degree to be a student ambassador you do have to be an experienced college student. There also has to be a program at the college you attend and you have to enjoy working with others.
Here's the first step for high school students
Learn how to work with others well and know what resources are out there to help first time college students. Pick a college that has a mentor program or find a way to get one started.
