Community Involvment

The Phillips Ambassadors Program requires each ambassador to share their Asia experience with their hometown or campus community upon return via a unique self-designed Give Back project. Returning ambassadors also volunteer at Study Abroad, UNC Global, and Kenan-Flagler Global Programs events to encourage other Carolina students to consider studying abroad.

Program staff are able to use UNC’s flexible Community Service Leave to participate in activities such as volunteering at the Carolina Community Garden, building homes with Habitat for Humanity, and tutoring elementary-age children at Read and Feed. Our director, Dori Brady, served on the UNC Employee Forum’s Community Service Committee to help organize campus-wide efforts including the annual UNC Children’s Hospital Toy Drive and Food for All Food Drive. Spot her in this Community Service Leave informational video.  

Environmental Stewardship

The Phillips Ambassadors Program is committed to environmental stewardship. We are striving to reduce our impact by sourcing items for events that are reusable or made from sustainable, biodegradable, and/or 100% recycled materials. All suggestions are welcomed.
