ACADEMIC YEAR (’19-20) POSITIONS:
SAIL Ambassadors are UO college students whom represent the University of Oregon SAIL program in the Springfield school district in both high schools and middle schools. Ambassadors affect meaningful change by assisting middle schools with 8th grade to 9th grade transition and facilitating college preparatory activities in high schools. SAIL’s ultimate focus is to provide students the necessary tools in order to pursue and enroll in higher education; ideally, transforming these students into University of Oregon Ducks themselves.

Mentors may find themselves working on academic tutoring, ACT/SAT practice, study skills, time-management, college searches, scholarship application (FASFA), college essay writing, career exploration, and more.
Both Mentors and Ambassadors receive on-going trainings and support throughout the school year in order to improve in their ability to support SAIL Program.
