Student Ambassador

 

“The mission of Passim is to provide truly exceptional and interactive live musical experiences for both performers and audiences, to nurture artists at all stages of their career, and to build a vibrant music community.”

 

Passim is the center of a vibrant live music community with a legendary history, and Passim Student Ambassadors play an important role in bringing this unique experience to life for the student audience. Our Student Ambassadors are passionate about live music and the community that makes Passim so special. They are responsible for driving Passim’s brand image on their campus, as well as cultivating and sustaining interest in Passim’s programming. The goals of the Student Ambassador program are to reach new students, engage students in Passim’s mission, increase ticket sales and student membership, and translate student membership into loyalty to Passim post-graduation.
