Each year, the PCC Student Ambassador Program educates and empowers 10-12 dedicated students for success by providing them with opportunities to develop social, organizational, and leadership skills through service to the college and PCC Foundation. Ambassador duties include leading visitors on campus tours, representing the college and foundation during official functions, and participating in community service activities.
Students accepted into the program participate in extensive leadership training and receive scholarships equivalent to the current rate of in-state community college tuition and fees. They are also provided attire distinguishing them as official PCC representatives.
PCC Student Ambassadors must maintain full-time enrollment status (unless otherwise directed by the program of study or academic advisor) and complete at least 3-5 hours of assigned service each week. They must also make scholarship service requirements/activities their top priority. No exceptions will be made to accommodate work/personal commitments.
