The list of responsibilities is not exhaustive and there is so much more you can add to this role. We are looking for GSL Ambassadors who can take initiative and be a great team player. ‘No task too small and no challenge too great’ is our motto!
What do they say?
GSL has helped to hugely boost my confidence which has been useful when interacting with new people; whether it be at a job interview or a party, i’ll now talk to anybody.
I have learnt how to grasp every opportunity that comes my way and now I am inspired to travel the world and embrace different cultures.
I wanted to return to GSL as an Ambassador mainly to be part of the incredible experience the new participants would have and to help guide them through the two weeks. I also think there is always going to be room for self improvement, so I wanted to return to GSL to further develop myself as a person as well as learning new leadership skills.
After my experience of being a GSL Ambassador I’ve been offered to work for Future Foundations as a coach on the National Citizens Service in the UK and been given an opportunity to coach on a GSL Catalyst programme in Beijing, China.
I urge you to apply as it’s the best volunteering opportunity possible!
The Programme was an eye-opening experience even more me as an ambassador. It was an environment I felt gave the opportunity for people to really be themselves and feel comfortable in their own skin when sharing opinions, creating ideas and communicating with others. The content in the programme was interesting and engaging and I thought that it was relevant and useful for the participants as the things they learnt and developed were transferable into life after the programme.
When we first spent free time outside in the college gardens, it was a warm summers evening and, I was playing games with a group of girls from China and India and despite maybe slight language barriers I felt like I was playing these games with people I had known for such a long time, it was like all our differences and opinions and judgements were put aside and we just accepted each other. It was so nice to feel like you were somewhere with people that accepted you for you and not what you looked like, where you were from or what school you went to, just you. GSL showed me how society should be and how important it is that I do something be yourself.
The transformation that happens from the first day to the last week is incredible. The participants establish lifelong connections and still continue to communicate to this day. Events such as the Talent show allow participants to really shine and provide excellent bonding opportunity. The participants this year really stepped up to the bar this year with their enthusiasm and passion. I wish them well and hope they can continue to collaborate between continents
I wanted to return to GSL because I love the environment and the vibe. I find it so incredible how much everybody develops and what we can all achieve if we have the freedom and the right surroundings to fully be ourselves. Moreover, I wanted to help the participants to reach their full potential and get everything they can out of GSL, and everyone always inspires me so much. I am amazed by the coaches, so coming back, I was very interested in the coaching side of GSL which was just awesome to see.
