CRS Student Ambassador Training


Fall Regional Trainings


Each Fall, CRS University offers training opportunities for students and accompanying staff to equip them to start, deepen and grow their CRS Student Ambassador chapter on campus.  A core group of students plus a staff advisor from each university are invited to attend. We welcome universities who have been partnering with us for many years as well as new universities who are interested in building a relationship with CRS on campus.

CRS Student Ambassador On-Campus Trainings


Other forms of on-campus trainings are offered on an as-needed basis by CRS staff.  Please contact to inquire if you are interested in having a CRS staff person come to campus to train a group of students and staff as CRS Student Ambassadors and Advisors.  In particular, if you have participated in the DIY training above, we would love to come to campus for an abbreviated "training" session to follow up with skill-building and action planning for your particular campus context.
