Meeting with Governor Brown | December 12, 2016

The OASC Capitol Ambassadors Program is an innovative, first-of-its-kind program that engages high school students in politics and public policy. This is an exciting opportunity for high school student leaders across Oregon to gain firsthand experience, connect with other student leaders, and develop real-world skills. OASC CAP is perfect for any student passionate about making a difference and interested in becoming a stronger leader.

The year-long program will introduce students to the state legislature and connect them with other students, elected leaders, and public officials from all over the state. There will be field trips, webinars, workshops, and more. Over the last two years, CAP students visited the State Capitol, met with Governor Brown and leaders of the Department of Education, interviewed legislators, learned how to build compelling resumes and cover letters, and testified before the House Education Committee on the student perspective in education policy.

We will select a group of around 25 students to be members of the third class of OASC Capitol Ambassadors Program; we are looking for high school students of all ages, from all over Oregon, and with all kinds of backgrounds and interests. They will represent OASC and their peers from across the state. New and returning students are welcome to apply. This program is completely non-partisan and students of all belief systems are welcome.
