Youth engagement and uplifting the youth voice have always been at the center of Stockton Scholars. The original High School Ambassador cohort was recruited in 2019, and their impact was felt almost immediately. Under the leadership of Griselda Rojas, the ambassadors hit the ground running, assisting with workshops at the Hub (1700 S Eldorado St), and representing Stockton Scholars at community/school events. Most importantly, the ambassadors served as liaisons between their peers and Stockton Scholars outreach staff.
Unfortunately, placed on hold in 2021 due to pandemic-related restrictions, the Stockton Scholars High School Ambassador program has been overdue for a re-launch! So, in June 2023, the new High School Ambassador Cohort, kicked off their ambassador year with a service project at the Ted & Chris Robb Community Garden at the Univerisity of the Pacific, and ended the day with a campus tour.
Stockton Scholars High School Ambassadors are community and campus leaders who promote and drive a college-going culture by being vocal about the resources and opportunities available to help all students achieve their after high school (postsecondary) goals.
