Ambassador Board

The KIPP DC Ambassador Board is a select group of committed individuals who strive to make a difference in the lives of students and the communities our schools serve.

While engaging in outreach and advocacy work, Ambassador Board members take an active role in improving educational outcomes for KIPP DC students. Through this work, they enrich and strengthen their own impact and networks. Ambassador Board members help fuel KIPP DC’s role as a model school system and leader in the D.C. and national education communities.

Board Member Responsibilities

The KIPP DC Ambassador Board is a select group of committed individuals who strive to make a difference in the lives of students and the communities our schools serve.  Ambassador Board members are eager to take action.  Over the course of their term, they commit their energy towards three primary responsibilities: activation, commitment, and investment.

 

Activation

Board members connect and build relationships with new external champions, represent and advocate for KIPP DC across their networks, and actively seek new partners and friends for KIPP DC.

 

Commitment

Ambassador Board members attend quarterly in-person board meetings, and act as members of host committees for our spring KIPProm fundraiser and annual College Send-Off graduation campaign. In addition, they engage in two or more student-focused events annually, including  KIPP DC’s College Fair, our KIPP Through College & Career networking event, scholarship interview panels, KIPP DC days of service, school-based volunteer projects, or serving on the Friends of KIPP DC leadership committee.

 

Investment

As a part of their commitment, Ambassador Board members fulfill a “give/get” financial pledge of $2500 annually via any combination of individual fundraising campaigns, monthly giving program membership or sponsorship, event ticket sales, or direct contributions.
