Ambassadors for Learning™
Ambassadors for Learning™ is an innovative mentorship program that connects Cleveland Clinic employees, their relatives, physicians, retirees, or proactive members of the community with volunteer opportunities at more than 700 public and private schools throughout the region. Through the program, volunteer can tailor their roles to their professional and personal skills, providing valuable real-world learning to students throughout grades K-12, facilitating their transition into post-secondary education.
A mentor is more than just a counselor and a guide. In addition to giving something back to the community that taught you so much, mentoring is the unique opportunity to pass on one's knowledge and experiences, so progress and innovation are constant. Above all, mentoring allows you to inspire a younger generation while you, yourself are inspired to continue doing better.

NOTE: Since we work with minors, all applicants are subject to a background check. We require that applicants be “in good standing” with the Cleveland Clinic. The Office of Civic Education Initiatives looks at “good standing” as an employee or a retiree having never received ANY corrective action and this information will be verified by the employee’s supervisor and/or Human Resources.
