This past Winter term, the Ontario Chamber of Commerce was seeking Humber students to be Campus Ambassadors to promote the Discover Ability Network program. The Ambassador Program was created to invite students across the college to work directly with the Chamber of Commerce.
The Discover Ability Network is a free online job-matching platform that connects those with a disability looking for a job to employers looking to hire from the disability talent pool. Many students on campus have lived experience with a disability, including but not limited to learning disabilities, mental health, or physical disabilities. The Discover Ability Network is a tool that enhances the effectiveness of a student or alumni’s job search, while also providing access to additional resources.
Students across Humber were invited to apply. Out of those selected, Student Ambassadors then worked to promote the Discover Ability Network through posts on various social media platforms and on campus to the student body. At the end of the opportunity, Campus Ambassadors received a Co-curricular Record and a $500 honorarium.
