Become a TreeAmbassador

Want another way to get involved in TreesCharlotte beyond planting events? Become a TreeAmbassador!

What is a TreeAmbassador?

A TreeAmbassador is a volunteer who is enthusiastic about TreesCharlotte and can deliver a positive and clear message about our mission. TreeAmbassadors represent TreesCharlotte at various outreach events.  Candidates should be comfortable both talking to an audience and listening to their comments and concerns. It will be your job to help educate the public about our beautiful canopy, the risks facing it and how everybody can help protect it.

What are TreeAmbassadors expected to do? 

TreeAmbassadors are asked to volunteer at a minimum of 3 outreach events annually (each about 3 hours). Typical events include manning a table at festivals or speaking in front of a school class. As public-facing opportunities arise, we will equip you with an event box complete with key facts, fun stuff to give away, important literature and whatever else is required!

How do I become a TreeAmbassador?

Candidates attend a 1-hour workshop where they will learn key talking points about TreesCharlotte and how to prepare for an outreach event. You must be at least 18 years of age and can register by completing the application.
