NSI 2012: Naviance Ambassador Program


Published on

This presentation covers the Naviance Student Ambassador Program that was implemented several years ago in a high school to help students become more engaged with using Naviance. Since that time the program has grown, and now includes events that reach into the community. This session offers an update on the program and discusses how you can create a student ambassador program on your campus.
