The National Park Trust College Ambassador Program provides college students with the resources to lead initiatives on their college campuses that increase outdoor recreation participation and stewardship on their college campus while also increasing access and awareness of parks and outdoor places.
In our pilot year, we have chosen six passionate students from two different schools to work with; the University of Central Florida and James Madison University. Through the 2021-2022 academic year, each group of students will work to leverage school assets and community connections to develop and implement a series of outdoor activities to engage their campus community in outdoor recreation. These activities will include a local park outing, a stewardship event, a fishing-themed outing, and social media outreach.
