VicSRC Ambassadors 

Proposed by the 2016/17 VicSRC Executive Team, the Ambassadors Program is designed to reach out to a wider pool of Victorian students, opening VicSRC’s channels of communication to schools outside the schools of the elected 15 Executive members.

Stemming from the ‘Student Voice in Decision Making’ group at VicSRC’s 2016 Congress, the Ambassadors program aims to strengthen the relationship between school SRC’s and the VicSRC.

In 2018 the VicSRC are launching the Ambassadors Program for 50 Secondary students from across Victoria. 

Tell me more: What does an Ambassador do? 

If you are to become a VicSRC Ambassador, you will act as the point of contact between your school, and VicSRC!
VicSRC Ambassadors represent the students of their SRC/leadership group, and help two-way communication between their schools, and VicSRC Executive and staff.
Through VicSRC Ambassadors, we hope to

  • Better connect SRCs and student leadership teams with VicSRC

  • Enable a greater range of students to have a direct input into VicSRC’s activities (for example, meetings with the Department of Education, or VicSRC’s Recognition Awards)

  • Provide students with a platform to learn skills and gain experience as volunteers in the education sector

  • Extend the network of passionate and involved students working for change!

Each VicSRC Ambassador will undertake a flexible role, participating in VicSRC advocacy, initiatives, and providing important feedback on what matters to the students they represent.

Who can be an Ambassador and what is the commitment?

Because Ambassadors are student representatives, you must be elected or endorsed by your school’s student leaders or broader student body to apply for this role.
Your school might like to treat applying for the VicSRC Ambassador position in a similar way to SRC President, Chair, or School Captain.

An Ambassador’s duties involve:

  • Communicating between their own school student council and the VicSRC Executive and staff

  • Participating in a range of VicSRC engagements such as

    • Reference/advisory groups

    • Surveys in school

    • Panel discussions

    • Assisting VicSRC Executive 

    • Volunteering at VicSRC Events (Recognition Awards, Student Voice Workshops etc.)

    • Media engagements

  • Volunteering approximately 1-2 hours each fortnight to work on VicSRC Ambassador tasks.

  • Attending VicSRC Ambassadors group meetings (approximately 1 per term).
