The Community Ambassador Training Program is an initiative organized by the Office of Human Rights & Equity in partnership with the Office of the County Executive and Howard County Administration. This initiative makes community members aware of Howard County government offices and departments while also providing them with an understanding of the services and resources available to them. More specifically, the program seeks to turn residents into Community Ambassadors that are equipped to tell their neighbors about the resources and services available to them, as they have need. It provides attendees with the contacts, information, and connections necessary to be informed citizens who experience all that Howard County Government has to offer.
