Share your love of Star Island
The Star Island Ambassador Program is a group of dedicated volunteers seeking to share their love of Star Island with friends, neighbors, acquaintances – anyone interested in visiting Star Island.
The primary goal of an ambassador is to bring people to the island. The role of Ambassador is quite malleable and fit for just about any Shoaler. Working with one’s own materials, or using Star Island publications, our Ambassadors visit churches, libraries, community groups, and other social gatherings to share our summer home.
You can utilize the virtual Ambassador Toolkit to download helpful general Star Island materials as well as conference-specific items. Visit often as there are always updates to conferences or resources, and stay connected through the Star Island Ambassadors Facebook page.
Here are some Ambassador ideas:
However you choose to participate is great. And our guess is that you already act as an Ambassador – how can anyone visit Star Island without talking about it later?
So please, share Star Island because you love Star Island.
