Be a Global Ambassador with York International!

As a York University student, if you have studied, worked or volunteered abroad during your studies, you know how transformative education abroad experiences can be and how much they contribute to students' academic and career development. What you may not know is that only 3.1 per cent of full-time Canadian undergraduate university students take part in an education abroad experience annually.

By becoming a Global Ambassador you can help us make education abroad part of the university experience of more York students!

The Global Ambassador Program (GAP) is a York International initiative that supports the enhanced promotion of global learning programs at York by engaging previous student exchange and global internship participants. As a Global Ambassador you will promote the value of an international experience in a globalized world by participating in info sessions, classroom visits, chats, and much more. What a perfect opportunity for you to share your passion for cultures and languages, and tell other students about the global opportunities available at York and the support - including financial - offered through York International.

Your commitment? Approximately 3 hours a week starting in September. As a small token of recognition Global Ambassadors will receive a stipend of $250 per semester and a certificate of recognition.

*Applications are NOW CLOSED.

We look forward to receiving your application!
