CARE Ambassador Program

The CARE Ambassador Program is a student-led initiative to bridge the gap between the CARE office and the UCSF student body. Member students serve as liaisons between survivors of interpersonal violence and the various resources available to them. CARE Ambassadors are trained in trauma-informed communication, bystander intervention, and navigation of the various resources available at UCSF and in the community.

We'd like to emphasize that this is not a counseling service, that the program serves only to expand the reach of the CARE office in its mission to connect survivors of interpersonal violence to available resources.

We invite students to reach out to your CARE Ambassadors and get connected to resources available to survivors of interpersonal violence.

CARE Ambassador Program Application

Would you like to ensure students/survivors have an approachable, peer-level point person to direct questions and concerns? It is incredibly important that this program represents all UCSF students.

Training for the CARE Ambassador Program is currently closed.
Check back in November for application information.

We model this program after a number of similar ones at peer institutions and would be happy to share information about the success of these student-driven programs, should you like those references.
