Are you looking to uplift your community by providing timely financial education? The Office of Economic Empowerment (OEE) – a division of the State Treasurer’s Office – is accepting applications for the Community Ambassadors Program. This is an initiative aimed at increasing the number of Massachusetts residents who have a deep understanding of financial foundations by creating a network of community spokespeople.
The Massachusetts Healthy Aging Collaborative encourages communities working to become more age and dementia friendly to promote this opportunity for older adults who may be interested.
Ambassadors will help spread awareness of OEE’s programs, increase engagement in key focus areas, and further the office’s mission of empowering all Massachusetts residents. Following training conducted by OEE and M&T Bank, Ambassadors will commit to a six-month term while earning a certificate of completion and a $2,500 stipend.
These spokespeople, chosen because of their own networks and existing commitment to the state and its residents, will help spread awareness of OEE’s programs, increase engagement in key focus areas, and further its mission of empowering all Massachusetts residents.
The inaugural Ambassador Training Program will take place over the course of six months. Ambassadors will become well versed in OEE’s programs, be provided with resources for themselves and participants, and receive a step-by-step guide on how to engage participants within their networks.
OEE seeks to accept ten Ambassadors across Massachusetts. Ambassadors will receive a certificate of completion and a $2,500 stipend.
