ASPIRE Ambassador

ASPIRE Ambassador

ASPIRE is an outreach program that works with school students from low socio-economic status (SES) backgrounds in schools across Sydney and regional New South Wales. Its aim is to increase their educational aspirations and help them access a university education.

Responsibilities

ASPIRE ambassadors are trained to facilitate workshops with small groups of students in school; help students find out information about university options; keep students safe whilst helping them to have fun when they visit the university; and share their own experiences of university.

How to get involved

We are looking for current students who have studied at UNSW for more than one semester to join our ASPIRE Ambassador team. Postgraduates and undergraduates from any faculty and degree programs are welcome to apply.

Have you got what it takes?

You need to be:

  • Passionate about education and the benefits it can bring
  • Able to lead, communicate and inspire young people to achieve
  • Understand the barriers young people face accessing higher education
  • Open and willing to share your own university experience
  • Enjoy meeting new people and working in a team.

Applications open prior to each semester. For more information email the ASPIRE Coordinator.
