What is a Street Ambassador?
From Better Bridges to Safer Comm Ave, volunteer Street Ambassadors have played a pivotal role in many of LivableStreets' campaigns. Trained by our staff and lead advocates, Street Ambassadors actively engage with people on the street, distributing surveys and information to help put community at the center of street improvement projects.
Street Ambassador duties can include:
- Helping to administer surveys and collect petition signatures
- Communicating goals and benefits of proposed projects
- Handing out informational flyers
- Asking community members for their feedback
Why Street Ambassadors?
The best way to improve a street is to get out there and get people talking about it. Street Ambassadors play a crucial role in demystifying the public process, organizing community concerns, and directly communicating those concerns to officials and decision-makers. Street Ambassadors help to amplify a diversity of voices to ensure that our streets are safe, accessible, and equitable.
LivableStreets will be training volunteers interested in becoming Street Ambassadors in March and April to assist in our Better Buses and Longwood Area initiatives throughout the spring, summer, and fall of 2017.
