Intercultural Ambassador Program


Intercultural Ambassador Program

 

Every two years the City recruits 10 Intercultural Ambassador volunteers who represent a diverse range of multicultural and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander backgrounds in our community. The Ambassadors will participate in community events and projects, City advisory and reference groups and attend civic functions. They will also act as champions for their existing communities and gain valuable leadership and development opportunities.  Our Program is based on the successful City of Ballarat Multicultural Ambassadors Program. Funding for the Pilot Program has been provided by the Victorian Government.
