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 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 positive relationships between Campus Crime Stoppers and our communities and inspire lasting changes within individuals through our leadership and unity.
Students involved in the Ambassador Program will cultivate and strengthen transferrable skills, gain leadership experience, and push their boundaries to achieve personal growth throughout their Ambassadorship.
Students can apply, interview, and are selected to join the program each year at our Texas Crime Stoppers Campus Conference. Interviews are conducted and selections are determined by the Ambassador Program Coordinator & Liaison.
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.
