Learn about this new program's goals and how to apply to become a trained volunteer to facilitate introductions to SciStarter and citizen science at a library near you! The SciStarter Ambassador Program is a volunteer training program designed for individuals from diverse backgrounds and experience levels who want to introduce SciStarter and citizen science to people in their communities. As libraries and community-based organizations (CBOs) are increasingly becoming community hubs for citizen science, they need additional support from volunteers to maximize and sustain interest among members of the public. The SciStarter Ambassador Program aims to address this gap by providing enthusiastic volunteers with the knowledge, skills, experiences, and professionally designed resources essential for cultivating and supporting citizen science initiatives within their communities. The live webinar will include: Opportunities for Libraries and Community-Based Organizations: Learn how the program will benefit Citizen and Community Science library network members. Success Stories from Pilot Ambassadors: Hear firsthand from our pilot Ambassadors about their inspiring journeys, successes from past events, and the impact they've had in their communities. Q&A Session: Engage directly with program organizers and current Ambassadors to get all your questions answered. Networking Opportunities: Connect with like-minded individuals passionate about citizen science and collaboration. Whether you are new to SciStarter/citizen science or a seasoned enthusiast, this event is designed to inform, inspire, and equip you to become a volunteer Scistarter Ambassador. The SciStarter Volunteer Ambassador Program provides free trainings and resources for any volunteer interested in introducing SciStater and citizen science through library events and programs. No prior experience is necessary to enroll in the new trainings. You are invited to join us via Zoom on July 31 for the SciStarter Volunteer Ambassador Program Launch Party where we will share details about the program and how you can get involved. Tuning into the Launch Party via Zoom on July 31 does not indicate a commitment on your end. This is an informational overview to help you learn about the program and determine if it’s something you’d like to get involved in.
