WQPT Ambassadors

If you like volunteering, Public Television and meeting people—you'll love being a WQPT PBS Ambassador.

WQPT PBS Ambassadors are a highly trained extension of the WQPT volunteer team. The Summer Program offers students the opportunity to engage in numerous station events and activities—in addition, they assist with event planning, marketing, education and other career-oriented activities.

Fun & Invaluable Experience Guaranteed!

The WQPT PBS Ambassadors program offers college (and graduating high school) students hands-on experience in the fields of event planning, education, marketing, public affairs, and much more. Students gain valuable real-world experience while representing one of America's most trusted brands—PBS.

Ambassadors bring the best PBS KIDS resources to children throughout the region with fun, engaging and educational workshops, school visits, library activities and special events. These resources provide support for parents, teachers and caregivers who touch the lives of children and strengthen the community's future.

"WQPT PBS understands the importance of being active in the community and that it can be difficult to do so with a very small staff. The station relies on student ambassadors to represent WQPT in its community (and throughout the region) to build reading, science and math skills through WQPT programming. Student ambassadors bring outstanding resources from PBS Kids to the Iowa-Illinois region through workshops, school visits, library activities and special events. These resources provide support for parents, teachers and caregivers who touch the lives of children and strengthen the region's future."
