The Ambassadors will represent the Tri-Centennial at events as greeters and assist with the operation of an event as needed. They will also provide general information about the
Tri-Centennial, history of Natchitoches, and assist guests and participants at events.
Area students interested can volunteer, and must agree to participate in a training session, attend at least one event a month, and adhere to a dress and behavior code. This opportunity will include a commitment of volunteering for one of three terms in the year-long celebration. The terms coincide with school calendars and university semesters. Volunteers can complete a four month term, winter/spring, summer, and fall, and volunteer for another if they choose. A letter of citation will be given to each volunteer commemorating their work and dedication to the Tri-Centennial year.
Students seeking a position as a Tri-Centennial Ambassador must participate in a training session. A handbook will be distributed to each volunteer that includes basic information about Natchitoches, its history, and the Tri-Centennial. The Ambassadors will also be trained in delivering a series of official greetings to use when representing the Tri-Centennial such as, “Welcome to the oldest city in Louisiana,” “Welcome to Natchitoches, 300 years in the making,” and “Welcome to Louisiana’s first Tri-Centennial City.”
