Volunteers Needed for the 2014 Richmond Training Camp Ambassadors Program


Through the City of Richmond’s Neighbor-To-Neighbor initiative, the Washington Redskins are seeking 250 volunteers to serve as Fan Experience Ambassadors or Security Ambassadors during training camp this summer. Training camp will begin on July 24 and conclude on August 11 and is held at the Bon Secours Washington Redskins Training Center, 2401 West Leigh Street.

There will be two shifts for both types of ambassadors. For Fan Experience Ambassadors, the morning shift will be from 7 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. and the afternoon shift will be from 12:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. For Security Ambassadors, the morning shift will be from 6 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. and the afternoon shift will be from 12:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. There will be a few dates with only a single practice which may result in only one shift.

“This is an incredible opportunity to become a Richmond Training Camp Ambassador and promote civic pride by providing a positive visitor experience at the 2014 training camp,” said Mayor Dwight C. Jones. “Last year our Ambassadors helped showcase our city and its many amenities. They represented the face of Richmond and we received an overwhelming positive response about their help and assistance in and around the facility.”

Richmond Training Camp Ambassadors who volunteer for a certain benchmark number of shifts, will receive awards, including a top award of attending the August 18, 2014 preseason game at FedEx Field.

Preference will be given to individuals who can commit to volunteer to higher number of shifts. For a complete list of details about this fantastic volunteer opportunity please visit www.richmondgov.com/NeighborToNeighbor/documents/volunteerTrainingCampAmbassadorsProgram.pdf.
