Volunteers Needed for the 2017 Bon Secours Washington Redskins Training Camp Ambassador Program


The City of Richmond’s Neighbor-To-Neighbor program is looking for 250 volunteers to serve as Richmond Training Camp Ambassadors. The Washington Redskins Training Camp will begin on July 27 and conclude on August 13, held at the Bon Secours Washington Redskins Training Center.

The Richmond Training Camp Ambassador program allows volunteers to be the “face” of Richmond. Program participants highlight local tourism destinations, restaurants and other points of interest in the city, answer questions about training camp and help make it a fun and safe event for all attendees.

Shifts will be from 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. and from 1 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. for Fan Experience Ambassadors.

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, resulting in only one volunteer shift.

All volunteers will receive the following general incentives:
Volunteer recognition certificate
  • Free Redskins hat and t-shirt
  • Redskins vs. Cowboys Game-Viewing event at the Training Center for Ambassadors (Sunday, October 29, 2017)
  • Discount at the Redskins Training Camp Team Store
  • Discount with Training Camp food vendors
  • Discount on a personalized brick for Brick Walk entrance
Richmond Training Camp Ambassadors who volunteer for a certain benchmark number of shifts will receive additional rewards. Specific information about the incentive program (1 shift approximately 5.5 hours) is as follows:
  •  2 Shifts/11 Hours: Free or discounted tickets for City of Richmond sponsored events
  •  3 Shifts/16 Hours: Free tickets to the Richmond Squirrels “Redskins Day” home game
