Ever wonder how you can volunteer without even leaving the Meadowlark Hills campus? There are opportunities available to meet that need. 

At Meadowlark Hills, a committee was created to be just that: representatives and messengers of the organization. You can volunteer to participate in the Ambassador Committee.

According to Webster’s Dictionary, the definition of an ambassador is an authorized representative or messenger.

The committee meets twice a month and each meeting brings more enthusiasm than the last!
