What is it?
The BridgeU Student Ambassador program is a way to advance the college and career counselling program in your school by letting your students take the lead.
With this program, students will engage more in college and career exploration because they can take ownership of the process and implement it with their peers.
The program is designed by you and your Customer Success Manager at BridgeU to make sure that it aligns with your counselling curriculum, but the activities are led by the students themselves.
Proposed activities within the program are designed to encourage the use of the BridgeU platform, hence making sure that your students are using it to its fullest potential.
How does it work?
Your dedicated BridgeU Customer Success Manager will assist you to design the ideal BridgeU Student Ambassador program and selecting the ideal candidates among your students.
You will design a program plan based on the grade the students are in and based on the goals you intend to achieve within the duration of the program, normally one school term.
The plan will include well-defined milestones that have to be achieved.
Your Customer Success Manager will be assisting you throughout the duration of the student ambassador program.
How does it benefit the students?
The BridgeU Student Ambassador program is a great way for students to undertake extra-curricular activities.
In fact, the BridgeU ambassador program involves activities rolled out independently by student ambassadors with their peers.
It also involves behind the scenes activities where the Student Ambassadors plan the program together with the counsellor and monitor it over time.
Learning outcomes for students include project management, leadership and communication. BridgeU will also award the students with a certificate.
You may also consider aligning this project with curricular requirements, such as CAS (for IB schools). Ask your customer success manager how this can be arranged.
How does it benefit your college and career counselling program?
The BridgeU student ambassador program empowers students to take charge of part of college and career counselling, hence making them more proactive and stimulating their interest in it.
Your tech-savvy students will support others in the best practice use of BridgeU, making sure that they are getting the most out of the platform.
Finally, it will allow you to achieve more consistent data collection from your students.
What are the benefits, and how to join?
Students participating in the program will gain this experience that would be clearly demonstrable in their university and career aspirations. Contact your dedicated Customer Success Manager at BridgeU to know how to get started and find out more!
