Become an OPAL Ambassador
OPAL Ambassadors are peer educators who facilitate workshops and spaces connected to social identity, power and oppression. Ambassadors primarily engage in the following:
- Developing agendas and designing curriculum for workshops and discussions.
- Facilitating request-based workshops, discussion series and events on topics such as identity, power/ oppression and community. Prior examples include: mental health, immigration, gender violence, body image, and social media.
Thinking of Becoming an Ambassador?
The Ambassador role focuses on facilitation for social justice. As an ambassador you will often be planning and leading important discussions. The first training term, you will be asked to make a 2 hour time commitment per week. In any terms following, you have more flexibility to determine your time commitment to this program.
If you are interested in joining the OPAL Education community but are less inclined towards facilitation or cannot make the time commitment for the Ambassador training term, we recommend you consider applying to become an Education Fellow. You may always re-apply to become an OPAL Ambassador.
