Parent Alliance Ambassador Service

Parent Alliance Ambassadors are selected current students and parents who help new families transition to Baylor by welcoming them into the school community. There are two areas of focus: (1) helping new day students in grades 7-12; (2) helping new boarding students in grades 9-12.

Ambassadors for Day Families

Because the sixth grade is the school’s main point of entry for day families, the parents and students in this grade begin building as sense of community almost immediately. The Day Ambassadors service is designed for day families in seventh grade and above. The purpose of the program is to:

1. Improve communication between Baylor School and new day families
2. Help new day families transition as they start their Baylor experience

In the late spring and throughout the summer, new families are matched with a current Baylor family. In partnership with the school administration, a new family’s parent ambassador serves as a resource for questions that may arise throughout the year. If you have any questions regarding this service or are interested in volunteering, please contact Tana Wilson or Windie McGinness.

Ambassadors for Boarding Families

The mission of the boarding ambassador program is to assist new Baylor boarding families and students from around the world (grades 9th through 12th) with the transition to Baylor and to make the beginning of school as well as the entire first year a positive experience by encouraging and helping them become familiar with Baylor and Chattanooga.

Boarding Ambassador volunteer opportunities include:
1. Assist with move-in/orientation weekend and help make the beginning of school a positive transition by encouraging new students and serving as a point of contact for questions during orientation and throughout the year.
2. Volunteer to drop off baked goods for the dorms 2 – 3 times per semester.
3. Encourage and assist with events sponsored by Parent Alliance & Res Life that promote and further interaction between day and boarding students. Such events might include: Pumpkin Carving & Painting, Gingerbread Decorating, Ms Kitty’s on the Quad, and Movie Night.
