VIRTUAL LEARNING AMBASSADORS PROGRAM

The SBWIB has taken a number of steps to ensure Youth have access to the resources they need to prosper amid a pandemic. We strive to assist schools with virtual services through our Virtual Learning Ambassadors (VLA). VLA’s are paid student interns, from the ages 16-24, who support elementary / middle / high school students, teachers and parents who need assistance adapting to a digital presence during COVID-19. VLA’s will receive 20 hours of paid training and up to $1,500 of paid work experience.
