    Primary Responsibilities:
    Help us make our community fun and inclusive! The Inspiration Playground was built to be an inclusive play space for people with and without disabilities to use together. Help us represent the playground's mission and engage our community. Ambassadors will be at the playground on Saturdays and will:
    • Play on the playground
    • Make the playground welcoming
    • Answer questions from kids and adults
    • Advocate for kids with disabilities
    • Encourage inclusive play
    • Assist with use of the equipment

    Ambassadors should come ready to play! Ambassadors will be on the playground and will access the space alongside the kids and families. Successful ambassadors will be energetic and enthusiastic, easy to talk to, accessible for kids who need assistance or have questions, and comfortable being available to provide support without being an authority figure.
