Brand Ambassador

WITF is looking for energetic, engaging, motivated Brand Ambassadors that love to talk to new people – children and grown-ups - with a smile and a positive attitude. 

The goal of the Brand Ambassador team is to represent WITF at community events, festivals, etc., sharing information about WITF programs and services, offer promotional items, encourage donations and process sales. 

At some events, Brand Ambassadors may be required to assist children and families with craft activities, or “perform” as a Costumed Character from a PBS KIDS program.
