Cañada is looking for current students to assist with Cañada’s outreach and recruitment efforts. Student ambassadors serve as liaisons between Cañada College, local high schools, and the greater community. They give presentations, assist with Cañada events, and answer questions from current and prospective students. Interested students should plan to be at Cañada for at least one academic year commitment. Visit the Outreach page for more information. Please contact our College Recruiter Olivia Cortez-Figueroa to apply or if you have questions.
