If so, consider applying to become a member of the JPII Ambassadors!

The JPII Ambassadors program is an opportunity for students to assist the Director of Recruiting with attracting talented, mission-focused students by sharing their experience as a JPII Saint with potential students and their families. It is also a great way for students to develop leadership and communication skills by talking to others outside the school about life at JPII.

In order to be effective and truly enjoy participation in this program, potential ambassadors should be positive student leaders who are outgoing, energetic, eloquent, and have a positive outlook and genuine interest in growing the JPII family. Ambassadors will be asked to share how JPII has shaped them into the amazing leaders they are today and must be comfortable sharing their story with other people when asked, and be willing to get coached on how to best do so. Ambassadors have the unique opportunity to receive training and develop communication, public relations, marketing, and interpersonal skills.
