The Greenway Ambassadors Program is back

We are recruiting for 5 enthusiastic and engaged Ambassadors to represent the Greenway and connect our work with members of their communities.

What do Ambassadors do?

  • Share information about the Greenway, and its programs and events with neighbors, community members, and trail users,
  • Gather ideas about the Greenway from their neighbors,
  • Represent the Greenway at community gatherings, meetings, and events, and
  • Shape the future of the Lafitte Greenway.

Ambassadors will be provided a stipend for their time.

How do I apply?

Please share the application with others who might be a great fit!
