Ambassador & Advisor Programs

AEMS Ambassadors

Arts Ed Ambassadors will help support the rollout of the Advocacy 101 webinars and other AEMS advocacy initiatives, recruiting participants and providing AEMS with valuable constituent feedback. This program is an opportunity arts education advocates under 40 to help us ensure that our work is making an impact in the arts education advocacy ecosystem.

These volunteer opportunities for current and retired educators range from giving their expertise and feedback to AEMS about our programs and operations to serving on working groups that support AEMS’s activities like assisting with development, communications, our equity/anti-racist work, and more.
