New Opportunity: The Community Ambassadors Program
Are you passionate about economic mobility and uplifting others? Interested in helping those around you build generational wealth? Then you’d make a great Community Ambassador for the Office of Economic Empowerment!
The Community Ambassadors Program aims to increase the number of Massachusetts residents who have a deep understanding of financial foundations by creating a network of spokespeople tasked with spreading awareness of economic empowerment initiatives to their communities.
Ambassadors will receive training from OEE and M&T Bank, a certificate of completion, and a $2,500 stipend.
