Oak Grove Ambassadors are individuals, community and business leaders who have a heart for helping at-risk and special needs youth. They are passionate about Oak Grove’s mission. Ambassadors help promote awareness of the youth’s needs, increase Oak Grove’s visibility in the community, and help make things happen!  When the Ambassadors are involved, they bring their leadership, resources and support important for creating experiences and opportunities giving our youth a greater chance at success and making a greater impact.

Oak Grove Ambassadors commit to meeting bi-monthly (or more if they serve on a particular committee) and have a specific financial or resource acquisition goal to help Oak Grove meet the needs of those we serve.

To learn more or to apply for an Oak Grove Ambassador, contact Kristi Piatkowski at (951) 677-5599 x2238 or email KristiP@oakgrovecenter.org.
