SEVICS Campus Ambassador program is an opportunity for students in tertiary institutions to make positive social change. They contribute to building the culture of inclusive development and learn leadership skills. This program is an attempt to buildup Africa’s future leaders.
Campus Ambassadors receive online mentoring and have a chance to coordinate programs of SEVICS with students in their institution. It is also a platform for the growth and development of future founders and CEOs. The program sets the stage for Ambassadors to set personal development goals and work towards them. They learn about opportunities for personal development and have access to resources that will enable them to make better life choices.
The Program is passion driven and is not a paid job position. Ideal Campus Ambassadors are passionate individuals who can work independently and are able to complete any tasks that they set out to accomplish.
