The Digital Ambassador Program cultivates the next generation of digital communication experts. ISRAEL21c selects North American college students who are passionate about Israel and social media. Each cohort plays an active role in engaging with and developing ISRAEL21c’s audience. In this exclusive program, Digital Ambassadors will develop their storytelling skills by sharing positive news about 21st century Israel with diverse communities across the globe.
Upon completion of the 10-month virtual program, Digital Ambassadors join a community of over 300 alumni and participate in ongoing projects that support the ISRAEL21c mission.
The Influencer Track is for students who want to use their own social media skills for a greater purpose. Digital Ambassadors on this track will learn how to utilize their online communities to spread content about issues that are important to them, while simultaneously growing their own influence and gaining a larger following. For example, one ambassador who is interested in food might focus on becoming a food influencer, while also using his or her platform to educate about food culture in Israel.
