Ambassador Program

Join us to build awareness, curate stories, and amplify the history and current successes of our Vietnamese community! Click on the video below to watch a testimonial from one of our Ambassadors!

The VBP Ambassador program pilot is funded by the New Jersey Council for the Humanities, an independent non-profit organization and state partner of the National Endowment for the Humanities. This is a volunteer-based (10-15 hours per month) role with the opportunity to gain hands-on experience and be part of shaping the narrative of the Vietnamese-American experience. We offer internship credits for the program and each ambassador will receive ethnographic interview training and a customary Ambassador kit!  For more information on this pilot, contact anna@vietnameseboatpeople.org.

Ambassadors can get involved in one or multiple areas across the mission.
