SoL Center Hospitality
Hospitality at the SoL Center is provided by volunteers in the Ambassador program. Ambassadors are members of University Presbyterian Church or members of other faith groups in the community who volunteer for a year or more of service and attend annual training in preparation for their duties. They help to create an environment conducive to learning by being attentive to the needs of both the Instructors and class participants. They set the tables with class materials, assist the course Instructor as needed, prepare and serve refreshments, monitor classroom conditions, attend to the needs of class members, and clean up the room and food service at the end of each event. Ambassadors recommend programs to the director and give important feedback for quality assurance at our events. In return, Ambassadors are able to attend the classes at which they serve free of charge. This service helps to create a memorable experience. If you are interested in finding out more about becoming a volunteer in the Ambassador program, contact Lucy Greer Burton, director of the SoL Center, or Lou Williams, Ambassador coordinator.
