Student Ambassador Program

Thank you to everyone who applied to be part of the 2020-21 program! We will be contacting participants in May before the program begins in summer 2020.

If you’re a high school student who wants to be involved in your school community and earn your volunteer hours, you can apply to become a MiWay Student Ambassador.

You’ll help to promote the benefits of public transit to your peers. It’s also a great way to learn about event planning, public speaking, digital communication and leadership.

Check the leaderboard to see the number of points your school has earned so far this year.

Who can apply

You must be a registered student at a school in the Peel District School Board or Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board. You can apply as an individual or as a team of two. Only one individual or team will be chosen from each school.

Applications are now closed for the 2020 to 2021 school year.

What an ambassador does

As an Ambassador, your role is to promote MiWay and help educate your peers about the benefits of public transit.

You’ll do different activities throughout the school year, like:

  • Attend the kick off meeting and network with Ambassadors from other schools
  • Create and share social media content
  • Produce videos and radio-style advertisements
  • Host a MiWay information table or other special events at your school

Prizes and perks

You’ll earn points for each activity you complete throughout the year. The Ambassadors who earn the most points will earn prizes like gift cards, a smart watch, or free transit for an entire year.

Read the full program rules and regulations here.

Ambassadors representing the top three schools will also be recognized at a Mississauga City Council meeting. All participating schools will receive pre-loaded PRESTO cards for students.
