The BerkShares Ambassadors program will include a dynamic mix of economics, history, organizing skills, and professional development. Participants will play an active role in each workshop, helping to provide local context, inform content, and initiate activities. BerkShares Ambassadors will grow into “community economists” who can expand awareness and usage of BerkShares and who are empowered to build relationships with their peers, community leaders, community banks and more than four hundred local businesses that participate in BerkShares.
