A program that focuses on hiring individuals with barriers to traditional means of employment to work during the C2UExpo conference? Yes, please! Meet Rachel Nelson, head of the C2UExpo Community Ambassadors Committee delegation, and the the delegation team: Landon Hoyt – Hastings Crossing BIA; Anna Migicovsky – Potluck Café; Darren Mumford – YMCA; Njeri Kontulahti – Vancity; Stephani Pritchard- WorkBC; and Stephen Dooley – SFU Surrey.

Rachel and her delegation have modeled an inclusive approach and recruited people who are facing barriers to employment to play a vital role during the C2UExpo conference. Community Ambassadors will work in various areas, such as logistical support, documentation, volunteer coordinators, and much more!

Community Ambassadors will have an opportunity to develop employability skills, meet and interact with new people from different organizations and background, increase networking opportunities, and gain a fun new experience!

The delegation members’ collaboration with each other have taught them the importance of active listening, and how valuable it is to learn diverse perspectives. Taking the time to listen and learn from each other is a major key to success!

Don’t miss this exciting opportunity that Rachel and her delegation team are conducting, and come say hi to the new 2017 Community Ambassadors for the C2UExpo in May!

In many instances, campuses and communities can often be thought of as separate clusters. C2UExpo 2017 has founded the Ambassador Program to bridge this gap by allowing communities participate and build employable skills in a reputable campus setting which the conference takes place at. Obtaining rigorous training, Ambassadors will have the opportunity to build capacity, and create an impactful difference both at, and outside the C2UExpo 2017 conference.
