The Memphis River Parks Partnership (MRPP) is looking for a group of Memphians to join a volunteer network supporting the transformation of the riverfront.
The group, deemed the Memphis River Parks Ambassadors will be tasked with volunteering at riverfront events and spreading the word about those events, according to the MRPP website: “As an Ambassador, you’ll be a part of making history by supporting the transformation for the riverfront."
Acting as spokespeople for the riverfront, the ambassadors will also be responsible for advocating and developing more support for the riverfront, representing the riverfront at community events, and organizing events to raise funds for the riverfront.
In return, participants will get networking and educational opportunities with MRPP staff, first looks at plans for future riverfront developments, invitations to ambassador appreciation events, and exclusive Memphis River Parks swag.
MRPP will be accepting applications beginning December 11th through the end of the year. The organization says no qualifications are required “apart from a passion for the riverfront and a desire to move Memphis forward!”
Ambassadors will be chosen on January 4th, and the first meeting is slated for Wednesday, January 16th. Ambassadors will meet once a month through April.
