The OASC Capitol Ambassadors Program is an innovative, first-of-its-kind program that engages high school students in the political process. This is an exciting opportunity for high school student leaders across Oregon to gain firsthand experience in the legislative process and meet other student leaders that want to make a difference in their state.
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. Last year, CAP students visited the State Capitol, met with Governor Brown and legislators, 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 second class of OASC Capitol Ambassadors Program to represent OASC and their peers from across the state. New and returning students are welcome to apply. We are looking for high school students of all ages and from all over Oregon. This program is completely non-partisan and students of all ideologies and belief systems are welcome.
Applications for 2017-2018 OASC CAP will be available in late August 2017.
