About the Program
The Ambassador Program of the Omaha Land Bank is designed to deepen and expand the bench of stakeholders and community members from whom the Land Bank learns, and to whom the Land Bank seeks to support and serve. Through the Ambassador Program, the Land Bank hopes to identify and share learning with a diverse cohort of potential board applicants and community advocates, to provide participants with information and experience regarding the Land Bank’s programs and potential impacts, and to learn from community members how the Land Bank can continuously be a better neighbor.
Each year’s cohort attends training sessions once per month for nine months, beginning in September and ending in May. There is a minimum of one participant selected from each City Council District. Candidates from all backgrounds are encouraged to apply. Successful completion of the program requires attendance at all meetings, unless the participant has been previously excused, and attendance at a minimum of one Land Bank Board Meeting.
APPLICATIONS ARE CLOSED
