Great! The next step is to take the Trail Ambassador Training. The training consists of three videos that cover the topics of what it means to be an Ambassador, how to navigate the logistics of the program and building key skills to have a successful volunteer experience.
There are 4 parts to the Ambassador training and the journey starts here! Each part of the training is a video followed by a short simple quiz. You can find the link to each quiz below their respective videos. This first video will give you an introduction to the role of a Trail Ambassador.
Ready to learn more? Move on to the second video that covers some of the logistics around becoming a volunteer, as well as some important safety considerations. Be sure to take the Video 2 quiz when you’re done (link below the video).
In the third part of the training, you’ll learn about the skills and key topics you’ll want to practice and understand in order to have a fun and impactful day at the trailhead. You can find the link for the video 3 quiz below the video.
Nearly there! This last video goes over the specifics of TKO’s Ambassador program. It covers logistics such as site set up, who your volunteer coordinator will be and how to get your background check done. Take the video 4 quiz when you’re done and then we’ll be in touch!
