Student Ambassador Program

Update Sept. 9, 2020: The 2020-2021 program will begin in late Sept. 2020.

If you’re a high school student who wants to be involved in your school community and earn your volunteer hours, you can apply to become a MiWay Student Ambassador.

You’ll help to promote the benefits of public transit to your peers. It’s also a great way to learn about event planning, public speaking, digital communication and leadership.

Who can apply

You must be a registered student at a school in the Peel District School Board or Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board. You can apply as an individual or as a team of two. Only one individual or team will be chosen from each school.

The application period for 2021-22 program will be from February to April 2021.

What an ambassador does

As an Ambassador, your role is to promote MiWay and help educate your peers about the benefits of public transit.

You’ll do different activities throughout the school year, like:

  • Attend online meetings
  • Create and share social media content
  • Produce videos and radio-style advertisements

Prizes and perks

You’ll earn points for each activity you complete throughout the year. The Ambassadors who earn the most points will earn prizes like e-gift cards, Apple® AirPods, or free transit for an entire year.

Ambassadors representing the top three schools will also be recognized at a Mississauga City Council meeting. All participating schools will receive pre-loaded PRESTO cards for students.
