Nearly 100 of the game’s dedicated community volunteers have flocked to Melbourne for the 2018 AFL Community Ambassador Program induction day on Saturday.
Held at Melbourne’s Multicultural Drill Hall, the annual event saw close to 100 Community Ambassadors representing a host of diverse cultural backgrounds gather together to learn about their role ahead of the 2018 football season.
Supported by the AFL and its 10 Victorian AFL Clubs, the AFL Community Ambassador Program aims to further engage multicultural and Indigenous communities in Australian football, through a network of dedicated volunteers.
Throughout the year, the selected Ambassadors will work with local AFL staff within their communities and promote AFL activities as a vehicle for engagement and inclusion, including school and coaching opportunities in each AFL Club’s Next Generation Academy as well as Cultural Awareness and Community Football activations.
