Become An Ambassador

Are you a people person? Is a full day’s trail work too much for you? Do you like to greet people, take pictures, chat with folks, and share goodies? Then we have a role for you!

The RFOV Ambassadors Program began in 2005 as a way to more effectively recruit project day volunteers into further involvement with RFOV, enhance the volunteer’s experience that day, and help RFOV evaluate that experience. Ideally an RFOV Ambassador has a personable and engaging personality with sufficient knowledge about RFOV to describe and answer questions about our programs and mission.

The program has expanded to include three distinct activities:

Project Day Ambassadors

One or two Ambassadors are present on each RFOV project day to:

  • Help with volunteer registration
  • Distribute drinks and snacks during the project
  • Engage the volunteers in conversation about RFOV and the volunteers’ experience and feedback
  • Recruit volunteers for RFOV committees, Crew Leader training, membership and other activities
  • Solicit and collect volunteer evaluations

Trailhead Tables

One or two Ambassadors staff a shift at the most popular trailheads to make contact with our primary constituency: trail users. Ambassadors will:

  • Greet trail users
  • Hand out snacks and water
  • Hand out RFOV information
  • Answer questions about the trail, RFOV projects and opportunities
  • Recruit volunteers

Road Show Presenters

One or two Ambassadors present the RFOV Road Show to interested groups to:

  • Raise our public profile and create more awareness of RFOV
  • Hand out RFOV information
  • Recruit volunteers
  • Recruit groups
