Coventry Ambassadors

The Coventry Ambassador Volunteer Programme helps build healthier and more inclusive local communities through the contribution they continue to make. 

The volunteer programme is a key Olympic Legacy for the City with engagement at Organising Committee level for Tokyo 2020, presenting Coventry Ambassador’s as a best practice model for Olympic Legacy volunteering. 

The drive and commitment demonstrated by our volunteers helps to ensure that events run smoothly and to plan and that attendees have a good experience, not only of the event itself, but also of the perception of the area.
