Ambassador Program

Ambassadors are volunteers from within the Guild’s membership who serve as points of contact to members throughout the country. Alongside Guild staff, Ambassadors organize professional development events, webinars, online video chats, and more! Their work creates new networks within arts education and strengthens the field’s impact in our communities.

Strengthening Networks

Ambassadors lead national networks supporting Creative Youth Development, Collegiate Divisional, Small Schools, Arts in Education, ALAANA, White Allies, Large Schools, and Emerging Leaders.

Sparking National Dialogue

Ambassadors drive national conversations around integrating the arts with youth development, racial justice in our communities, and more.

Supporting Our Members

Select events are exclusive to members, providing unique opportunities to learn from national leaders in arts education.

National Guild Member Networks

 Through the Ambassador Program, the National Guild currently supports eight national networks designed to convene members, share resources and strategies, and drive a national conversation around a given topic area. Ambassadors, in collaboration with the Guild and a steering commitee composed of Guild members, lead the national networks. Member networks provide programming and resources throughout the year that are available exclusively to members.
