What an ambassador does

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

  • Help educate students about the benefits of taking public transit
  • Attend online meetings
  • Create and share social media content about MiWay

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. You will also earn volunteer hours!
