Community Ambassador Opportunities

We’re nourishing leadership opportunities with members of our community

Our Community Ambassador Program was created in order for us to cultivate stronger community linkages and improve our program offerings with the support of resident community members.

We offer paid positions to local community members interested in the health and well-being of their community that will be supporting in-field operations for our mobile farmers’ market, community nutrition and gardening classes, as well as community outreach.

“Volunteering for Fresh Approach has been such a wonderful experience. I started off as a novice gardener wanting to learn more on how to grow my own food. Processing into becoming the compost ambassador and helping the community turn food waste into nutrient rich compost. I am so thankful for Fresh Approach because they have helped me get to know this beautiful community and become a part of it through their amazing program.”
