WALDEN CLASS AMBASSADOR PROGRAM
For Parents and Grandparents
Outreach within and outside the walden family
The WPA is excited to launch our new Class ambassador program!
Ambassadors are parents who have a passion for Walden and a desire to advance the school. Class ambassadors are instrumental in strengthening relationships within our Walden family.
They serve as parent liaisons by inviting fellow class parents to events, educating them on the Walden Fund, and providing support to new families.
The Class Ambassador program is designed to improve communication, increase participation, and provide you support.
Our Class Ambassadors, (current class parents) will send you monthly communication highlighting school and WPA events as well as other important school information. You should also feel free to reach out to your class ambassador with questions, ideas, or feedback you may have.

Walden Student ambassador program
For Students in Grades 5-12
Our students understand Walden from a perspective that cannot be imitated; their experience bears firsthand knowledge of our school culture and academic responsibilities. In holding such a position, students are able to truly express and reveal the positive attributes of our wonderful community. They can play a pivotal role in influencing the decisions of prospective families, donors, and current students; in so doing, our students shape the future of Walden.
ROLES AND EXPECTATIONS OF AN AMBASSADOR
A Walden Student Ambassador (WSA) brings the positive ideas, insight and influence to the forefront of our outreach initiatives; they are representatives of Walden's best student qualities and embody our values of respect for all others, passion for community involvement, and love of learning. Ambassadors are key players on the Walden admissions team by attending recruitment events and most importantly, serving as Shadow Day Buddies. Being part of the WSA program means participation in some of the most influential school events, including our Open House, Join the Journey tours and Walden Fund breakfast.
Through their involvement, WSAs gain invaluable experience in communication skills, social outreach, team building, and community service. They make new friends, enhance their resumes, attend exciting events, receive the inestimable satisfaction of a job well done, and most importantly, share their love for Walden!
