Introducing SLC 

art18055.jpg

Ambassadors, in the traditional sense, introduce foreign dignitaries to the local way of life, government and politics. Salt Lake City is looking for volunteers to introduce residents to the wonders of downtown, offer guidance on the sights and even help provide outreach to the homeless. This weekend, hit the track to hit back against ovarian cancer at a short benefit race. Later, don’t miss a Salt Lake County Planning Commission meeting discussing the adoption of a Bicycle Best Practices plan.

Be a Downtown Ambassador
Volunteer applications now being accepted

As a volunteer street concierge, you can help visitors with everything from finding a place to park to finding a place for a bite or a drink. Volunteers also help those in need of assistance with parking meters and the GreenBike program. Advanced-level ambassadors can also receive training on reporting illegal activity and offering outreach services to the homeless. Volunteers who complete two three-hour shifts in a month will receive community karma points as well as gift cards to downtown shops and restaurants.
