Interested in being a Rose City Ambassador in 2023?

Deadline: Monday, January 16, 2023

Visit Tyler is in our 2nd year of the “Rose City Ambassador” program, aimed at giving high school students the opportunity to earn community volunteer hours. The volunteer program is open to all high school students residing in Smith County who enjoy working with people.


Students must be academically eligible and go through an application and training process. The deadline to apply to be a Rose City Ambassador is Monday, January 16th.


Participants in the program will act as greeters at large community events throughout the year. The main events students will volunteer at are Azalea & Spring Flower Trail, Texas Rose Festival, and Azalea District Trail of Lights. They will also have the opportunity to serve at the Visit Tyler Visitor Center at various times throughout the year, as well.


Students will earn community service hours, which can be counted on their college applications or for high school requirements.


A maximum of 25 students will be selected for a one-year term for this program. Students will need to reapply each year after their term has ended.
