2019-2020 Application

The York Ambassador Application for the 2018-2019 school year is now closed.  The application for the 2019-2020 school year will be open in March, 2019. 

 

Ambassadors are selected based on the application and a discipline check by the deans.  All current freshmen, sophomore and junior students are invited to apply to be an Ambassador for the following school year.  Please note that Ambassadors are expected to complete 10 hours of school service during the school year.  A variety of activities and meetings are available to Ambassadors to meet that requirement.  If you have any questions please see Ms. Dollaske or Mrs. Julian in Student Services. 

Information

The York Ambassadors are comprised of sophomores-seniors who are committed to helping students transition to York. 

Ambassadors assist transfer students on their first two days at York and stay in contact periodically to help students form connections at York.

Ambassadors also host 8th grade parochial students on designated shadow days to help students get a feel for York's classes and environment.

Ambassadors also assist parents, students and visitors in the hallways during large school events like Freshmen Night, Freshmen Day, Open House & Parent Teacher Conferences.
