Ambassador Program

The Student Ambassador Program was developed to empower students to become leaders in New Brunswick Middle School to promote and encourage student pride in the school community. Each LCCA elects a student leader, or Ambassador, to direct their class in school-wide projects.  Ambassadors lead the LCCA lesson every Friday.  Currently, there are a total of 101 NBMS student ambassadors.

Ambassadors are given the opportunity to grow as leaders through Ambassador Training Day, Monthly Forums, and continual support from a dedicated student ambassador committee consisting of teachers and counselors. The goal of the Ambassador Program is to build student leaders that take ownership of their school experience and inspire their fellow student peers to actively participate in the betterment of their school and community.
