The Erie Ambassador program is designed to give participants a behind-the-scenes look into the work taking place to move Erie forward. 

The 10-week course examines numerous aspects of the community, providing in-depth information from some of Erie’s top civic leaders. The content of the program focuses on the intersection of government, private entities, and higher education, which is where productive economic development takes place. 


"I would recommend the program to those who are considering relocation to Erie as well as those born and raised in Erie, like myself. Just when you think you have knowledge of your city, you will discover that there is so much more to learn! Erie Ambassador Program is a sneak peek into a variety of our hometown gems."

"If you live in the Erie area, I highly recommend signing up for the Erie Regional Chamber and Growth Partnership's Erie Ambassador program. I've lived here for approximately 21 years and was astounded by everything that I didn't know about the place I call 'home.'"

"The Erie Ambassador program was eye-opening to ALL things Erie and I was able to make connections that I would not have otherwise. I would highly recommend this program to anyone that is even slightly interested in learning more about Erie. You will end the program as a believer of the city and what it has to offer! "

Erie Ambassadors will not only learn about the revitalization efforts taking place in our community but will also participate in leadership training to develop their skills to be able to speak about what they’ve learned and assist the Erie Regional Chamber and Growth Partnership in disseminating information about Erie’s transformation to the general public. Erie Ambassador Graduates are expected to be just that — ambassadors for the hard work that is taking place to secure Erie’s future as a thriving community.
