Helping build a caring community
where everyone thrives

Every community benefits from enthusiastic leaders that advocate for the well-being of its residents. Our Ambassador Program is comprised of passionate and influential people committed to strengthening Calgary and area—the place we live, work, and raise our families.

Like United Way, our local ambassadors believe that everyone should be afforded opportunities to reach their full potential, that kids deserve the support they need to get a great start in life, and that strong communities are vital to a great city where everyone has a sense of belonging and inclusion.
