Spartan Ambassadors

What is the Spartan Ambassador Program all about?
 
The Spartan Ambassadors are a group of dedicated students committed to the positive promotion of Damien High School. Ambassadors serve as liaisons between the Damien community and prospective students. Each member will have unique opportunities to develop communication, public relations, marketing, and interpersonal skills. Serving as a Spartan Ambassador is a commitment, as it requires a donation of time during class, lunches, evenings, and some weekends. Ambassadors are visible at many community and campus events including: Campus Tours, Preview Days, Middle School Visits, Prospective student visits, 8th grade Information Nights and any other events related to marketing and outreach.
 
What is the Link Crew Leadership Program all about?
Link Crew is a high school transition program that welcomes new students to Damien and makes them feel comfortable throughout the first year of their high school experience. Built on the belief that students can help students succeed, this  proven high school transition program trains mentors from our junior and senior classes to be Link Crew Leaders. As positive role models, Link Crew Leaders are mentors and student leaders who guide the freshmen, transfer and international students to discover what it takes to be successful during the transition to high school and help facilitate new student success.
