Meet community college's biggest fans and advocates: The Dallas College Street Team!
Street Team is made up of outstanding student leaders from across Dallas College – each passionate and outspoken. Their mantra: college is for everyone.
Spreading their message, the Street Team speaks with prospective students, current students and the community. They chat with the other Dallasites in classrooms, at concerts, in checkout lines … any location that can fuel conversation! But wherever they go, the Street Team goes to help. They know that better education means a better life, for college students and their families.
Growing as a Team
Together, the Street Team represents the unity and diversity at Dallas College through personal drive and determination, positive teamwork and (most importantly) servant leadership.
As a Street Team member, students have opportunities to:
- Earn college credit through
service learning with Street Team
- Enhance public speaking and communication skills
- Develop a professional network
- Advance leadership skills
- Network with community leaders
- Gain personal enrichment
- Acquire marketing and public relations experience (and resumé build)
- Interact with Dallas College leadership such as the Chancellor, Dr. Joe May
Serving as a Team
Typically Street Team is out and about, but with COVID our student ambassadors for the 2020-2021 academic year will be virtual ambassadors. That means any speaking engagements, classroom visits, college fairs, focus groups or festivals the Street Team participates in, we'll be attending online rather than in person.
Students selected to serve on the Street Team represent Dallas College during many community-focused events including (but not limited to): community activities, social media campaigns, student panels, focus groups, classroom visits, special campus events, official Dallas College functions, outreach events, radio station remotes, and car shows, to name a few!
