DSACT Ambassadors Application
DSACT Ambassadors are 16-35 year-old DSACT members who serve as role models and leaders in the Down syndrome community. Ambassadors have mature, friendly behavior with the ability to greet others verbally or through other means. They are able to work at a social event without parent supervision and with some adult supervision. They are well-groomed and serve as role models in the Down syndrome community, and as ambassadors to the Central Texas community.

DSACT Ambassadors participate in DSACT-sponsored activities throughout the year. In representing DSACT, they commit to community service and participate in service activities at DSACT events. Dates for these activities are planned well in advance to ensure maximum Ambassador participation. There are two mandatory volunteer opportunities: DSACT Cocktail Bash (Wednesday, April 3) and the DSACT Buddy Walk (Sunday, October 20). They are expected to form and promote a Buddy Walk team to raise funds for DSACT.

DSACT Ambassadors will also have opportunities throughout the year to participate in print and video media opportunities. Participation in these activities is voluntary.

Current and past DSACT Ambassadors are encouraged to reapply to the program year after year. There are local Central-Texas area travel requirements, at each Ambassador's expense. Those interested and able to commit to the program’s requirements are encouraged to apply. Please direct all questions to Laura Whitekettle, DSACT Outreach and Operations Manager, at laura.whitekettle@dsact.org, or (512) 323-0808.

Applications are due by Friday, March 8, at 4pm.
