The Washington Redskins Training Camp is ready to kick off its third year, from July 30 through August 16, at the Bon Secours Washington Redskins Training Center, 2401 W. Leigh Street. The City of Richmond’s Neighbor-To-Neighbor initiative and the Washington Redskins are seeking 250 volunteers to serve as Richmond Training Camp Ambassadors during this year’s camp.
There will be two shifts for both types of ambassadors, Fan Experience Ambassadors and Security Ambassadors. For Fan Experience Ambassadors, the morning shift will be from 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. and the afternoon shift will be from 1 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. For Security Ambassadors, the morning shift will be from 7:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. and the afternoon shift will be from 1 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. There will be a few dates with only a single practice which may result in only one shift.
“For the past two years the Richmond Training Camp Ambassadors have displayed a tremendous amount of civic pride and have provided a positive visitor experience at the training camp. We have received an incredible positive response to how Ambassadors have provided assistance in and around the facility,” said Mayor Dwight C. Jones. “The upgraded incentives Ambassadors can achieve this year underscores this incredible opportunity to serve as the ‘face’ of Richmond at training camp.”
Richmond Training Camp Ambassadors who volunteer for a certain benchmark number of shifts will receive awards, including the opportunity to attend an exclusive autograph session with Redskins players and coaches, tickets to a regular season Redskins home game, and a top award of an autographed Robert Griffin III jersey.
Preference will be given to individuals who can commit to volunteer to higher number of shifts. Click here for a complete list of details about this fantastic volunteer opportunity.
