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:

  • Help educate students about the benefits of taking public transit
  • Attend online meetings – online and in-person (hybrid program format)
  • Create and share social media content about MiWay

Rewards and perks

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

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.
