The City of Greater Bendigo’s new Intercultural Ambassador Program is a voluntary leadership opportunity for multicultural or Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander community members from across Greater Bendigo to share their culture, connect with others, and enhance understanding and cultural diversity.

This new program is based on the City of Ballarat’s long running and successful Multicultural Ambassador Program, which has seen over 40 Ambassadors act as champions for intercultural relations within the Ballarat community.

  • Are you from a multicultural or Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander background?
  • Do you want to make a positive contribution and share your culture with our community?
  • Are you passionate about human rights, social cohesion, inclusion and diversity?
  • Would you like to be trained in leadership, and build an understanding of local government while developing strong community networks?
  • Are you over 18 and do you currently live, study or work in Greater Bendigo?
