What do Ambassadors do?
Ambassadors help with four forms of outreach: (1) Event Outreach, (2) Classroom Outreach, (3) On-Street Outreach, and (4) Municipal/Governmental Outreach. Through outreach efforts, ambassadors work to build relationships with New Jersey counties and local governments and mobilize to attend community events on an “on-call” basis. Ambassadors occasionally organize safety and education events. For example, ambassadors will give bicycle and pedestrian safety presentation targeted to children, youth, or adults at after-school locations. Ambassadors also mobilize at high-pedestrian crash intersections and railroad crossing to distribute safety-related literature to bicyclists and pedestrians and to warm motorists via custom-made signage. Ambassadors give presentation on select topics such as Complete Streets Policies to municipal leaders and practitioner community meetings, conferences, or other venues, too.
