The Greater Cleveland Chamber of Commerce Student Ambassadors program has gotten off to a strong start for the 2021-22 school year. They are looking for an opportunity to assist your business during the Summer months.
“It looks like a great group this year, and they are all anxiously hitting the ground running,” said Chamber Vice President/Chief Operating Officer Jim Carson.
Carson touts the hard work these students put in each year because they have to earn their scholarships and genuinely put in the work.
Carson and the Chamber believe in what he calls the NFL system. “There is no free lunch; it’s not about academics; it’s about the labor they put in,” said Carson.
Students enrolled in the Student Ambassadors program volunteer with the Chamber to earn scholarship opportunities each year, and this year they are offering a new opportunity. Businesses can host a student to come into your office and perform needed tasks around the office. It’s practically free labor for a great cause. Students will earn points towards scholarships, just helping out around the office.
The last class of Student Ambassadors earned about $10,000 in scholarships, and this year’s group is primed and ready to shatter those numbers and double that number.
Also, they are seeking sponsors for this year’s program at a low cost of $180.00 per student. Sponsors will help cover the costs associated with the program. In addition, sponsors will receive recognition at all Chamber luncheons and via other platforms and events.
Camille Landry of Full Scope Pest Control and James Wall of Woodforest Bank serve as chairs for this year’s Student Ambassadors. For more information on how to be a part of these great opportunities, contact the Chamber at 282-592-8786 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
