APF’s Ambassador Program provides a unique and meaningful volunteer experience that allows residents to play a pivotal role in helping strengthen our city’s park system.  Ambassadors are trained volunteers who act as representatives for APF. As an ambassador, you will:

  • help APF expand our capacity to participate in community engagement events in neighborhoods across the city with a booth and volunteer presence
  • allow us to address needs, and invest appropriate resources in diverse communities all over Austin by being our eyes and ears in those neighborhoods
  • increase awareness about Austin Parks Foundation and the resources we offer
  • assist APF in increasing volunteer engagement throughout Austin and Travis County

Our eligibility requirements help us ensure that volunteers can successfully represent APF and help our city’s 300+ parks receive the care and attention they need:

  • Interest in helping strengthen Austin’s park system
  • Must have reliable transportation and ability to bring outreach supplies to events
  • Commitment to participating in a minimum of four outreach/tabling events per year
  • One year minimum commitment
  • Complete our online application and training process
  • Bilingual applicants encouraged to apply

Because APF requires a deeper level of commitment of ambassadors, and to show our gratitude for your involvement, every ambassador will receive: 

  • Unique APF merch
  • Networking and educational opportunities unavailable to all volunteers
  • Leadership development
  • Advance invitations to volunteer at APF-related events, including Party for the Parks, Austin City Limits Music Festival, and more
  • Volunteer appreciation events, like APF happy hours

Ambassador applications are accepted on an ongoing basis. Simply fill out the form below and our Community Organizer & Outreach Coordinator, Cynthia, will be in touch with any further questions.

Thank you for your interest in helping us increase our outreach efforts to benefit Austin’s 300+ parks, trails and green spaces!
