Students selected to serve as Baker Ambassadors help create, plan, and manage special events in connection with the Baker Center. Ambassadors participate in activities associated with the National Campaign for Civic and Political Engagement, a Harvard-led consortium which focuses on political engagement from research to educational programs for college and younger students. They also plan educational and social events for the Baker Center Living and Learning Community, Baker Scholars, and the public.
The Baker Ambassadors role is action-oriented, whereby students are given hands-on opportunities in the areas that interest them most. Whether through organizing the annual fall policy challenge or an on-campus debate, encouraging high school students to become involved in the political process, or registering people to vote, ambassadors gain invaluable experience and connections, while providing an important public service.
