Volunteers Needed for Redskins Training Camp Ambassador Program

June 26, 2019 - 11:11 am

Richmond, VA – The City of Richmond’s Neighbor-To-Neighbor program is looking for 200 volunteers to serve as Richmond Training Camp Ambassadors. The Washington Redskins Training Camp will begin on July 25 and conclude on August 11, held at the Bon Secours Washington Redskins Training Center.


The Richmond Training Camp Ambassador program allows volunteers to be the “face” of Richmond. Program participants highlight local tourism destinations, restaurants and other points of interest in the city, answer questions about training camp and help make it a fun and safe event for all attendees.


For Fan Experience Ambassadors, the morning shift will be from 7:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. and the afternoon shift will be from 3:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.


For Security Ambassadors, the morning shift will be from 7:00 a.m. to 1 p.m. and the afternoon shift will be from 3:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.


There will be a few dates with only a single practice, resulting in only one volunteer shift.

·        Volunteer recognition certificate
