AGF Ambassadors Win Prestigious Awards
Andrew Goodman Foundation Vote Everywhere Ambassadors were awarded numerous prestigious awards and fellowships during the spring semester.
“AGF Ambassadors are dedicated, passionate, and effective. These commendations reflect the wide-reaching impact the students have on their community,” says former Ambassador Jonian Rafti. Jonian, now a first-year law student, adds that “in my five years leading voter and civic engagement projects, the AGF has distinguished itself as a pioneer in the field. That’s why, several years ago, I joined the first cohort of Ambassadors.”
“Our focus is quality and long-term impact. We work with each campus, year after year, to build up the skills of the Ambassadors. The program enhances the university’s capacity for civic engagement through our student-driven and university-backed model.” says Program Director Nadia Hussain.
