The Crime Stoppers Ambassador Program is a student based leadership program for Texas youth involved in their Crime Stoppers community across the state.
The Ambassador Program consists of 12 students, and one alternate, who are carefully chosen and tasked with setting leadership standards of excellence among their peer groups, acting as role models on their campuses and in their communities, and are also required to complete a series of projects over the course of a calendar year.
To encourage and support positive relationships between Campus Crime Stoppers and Texas communities and inspire lasting changes within individuals through our leadership and unity.
The primary objective of the Crime Stoppers Ambassador Program is to shape young leaders in the Texas Crime Stoppers community. The aim of the program is to establish a network of informed and influential students throughout Texas who can actively represent Crime Stoppers while building a proficient skill set and gaining leadership experience.
Ambassadors are selected to represent their peers all over the state, and serve as the youth voice for Crime Stoppers in Texas. Ambassadors are expected to exhibit a high degree of maturity, responsibility, flexibility, and leadership at all times.
2022 Community Engagement Project
This year’s project is community engagement. Ambassadors are to work collaboratively with and through groups of people affiliated with their same interest in changing the community. They should partner with local businesses, organizations and volunteers to collect food, clothes, toys and monetary donations. Projects will be presented during the 27th Annual Texas Crime Stoppers Campus Conference.
Crime Stoppers Monthly Newsletter Article
Each student ambassador has been assigned a month to submit an article to be featured on the Texas Crime Stoppers newsletter. The topics may include, but are not limited to, campus program success stories, an interview with their Student Resource Officer or a board member, community engagement, editorials on leadership, mentoring, or student motivation.
Ambassador Newsletter Submissions
Students can apply, interview, and are selected to join the program each year at our Texas Crime Stoppers Campus Conference every February. Interviews are conducted and selections are determined by the Ambassador Program Coordinator and a panel of four selected by Texas Crime Stoppers.
Applications will be made available in September.
Students participating in the Texas Crime Stoppers Ambassador Program must have a sponsor’s support and approval. The Sponsor is responsible for their student Ambassador(s) and must agree to the terms outlined in the application. Sponsors will need to provide their contact information and sign off on the application to verify the information provided by the student is correct.
Sponsors will also be tasked with ensuring that their Ambassador is on track with the projects required of them over the course of 12 months.
