Teacher Leaders: Join Ambassador Leaders Alumni Network.
We know our teacher leaders and students form indelible bonds during the week they spend together during the summits, and many stay in touch through the years using informal channels and social media. Now, Ambassador Leaders is launching an official alumni network on LinkedIn to make it easier for teacher leaders and students to stay connected. We’re thrilled to introduce Ambassador Leaders Alumni Network—ALAN for short.
To succeed, we need your help! Join the Ambassador Leaders team by adding your experience as an Ambassador Leaders Teacher Leader to your LinkedIn profile. Just follow the simple steps below to get started today.
