COABE Student Ambassador

Calling All Adult Education Directors, Instructors, and Student Leaders

Ambassadors become representational leaders by developing their voice so they can effectively represent other students and take action for social change on issues they care about.

COABE’s Student Engagement Task Force wants to establish teams of trainers from programs around the country.

Ambassador Training 4 Components

  • Awareness–statistics and research about the value of adult basic education
  • Stories–most powerful tool to effect change
  • Public speaking–message and delivery
  • Meeting with officials–planning, practicing, facilitating meetings with people in power

The Student Ambassador Program is generously sponsored by AdvanceNet Labs.



  • Develop role and identity as a representational leader
  • Provide students with skills for college and career success
  • Increase visibility of adult education
  • Offer networking for students–current and alumni
