Goodwill Industries of Fort Worth is launching our first every Goodwill Ambassador program.  The Goodwill Campus Ambassador Program is a marketing volunteer program for students that are college sophomores and juniors at Universities in the Goodwill Industries of Fort Worth territory.  The program is meant to provide them with an opportunity to work on their professional development skills, increase their campus involvement, gain marketing experience, and receive early exposure on how to become competitive in the non-profit and environmental sustainability sectors.

Ambassadors would promote Goodwill events on their campus and help with small and large scale events.

There will be a orientation in August and the program runs August through December.  It will run again in the spring from January to May.  We are looking for volunteers who are Sophomores or Juniors who are able to serve for one academic semester or year.
