The Richter Center Ambassadors

Since 2008, the Richter Center Ambassadors have been working to make community service a part of the Fresno State experience for all students, faculty, and staff.  They do this by acting as:

  • Facilitators
  • Resources
  • Promoters
  • Role Models

Ambassadors volunteer their time for an entire academic year to plan and implement campus-wide campaigns to promote service, such as the Picture the Change campaign, Random Acts of Kindness, and National Volunteer Week.  The Ambassadors also plan and facilitate presentations and workshops about various aspects of community engagement.  Additionally, Ambassadors promote, support, and attend Richter Center events, such as national and local days of service (like Make a Difference Day), Kids Day, the Community Service Opportunities Fairs, and campus blood drives.

Other Ambassadors duties and responsibilities include:

  • Attend all RCSL Retreats and Trainings:
