ELSE Canada | Solar Ambassadors Program


What is a Solar Ambassador?
A Solar Ambassador works with ELSE to facilitate solar energy industry awareness, education, advocacy and action within their school or community. A Solar Ambassador is a post-secondary student who will host a minimum of one solar energy information event on their campus, with assistance from the ELSE Executive Committee. Ambassadors are partnered with an ELSE member for support and mentorship. To help with event planning, Ambassadors can access our online toolkit that includes a program and event guide, as well as a helpful information resource library.
