BSP recruiting teachers as census ambassadors

96

As part of the 2020 Census of Guam, the Bureau of Statistics and Plans is recruiting teachers islandwide to become ambassadors in the Statistics in Schools (SIS) program.

The deadline to apply is Sept. 30.

SIS uses U.S. Census Bureau statistics to educate pre-K through 12th-grade students about the importance of a complete and accurate census count. The program equips teachers with free and engaging activities to use in classrooms.

For the 2019-2020 school year, new materials will be released that teach students about the importance of the 2020 Census count, and empowers them to share this knowledge with adults in their home.

SIS ambassadors will champion the program in their classrooms, schools, and communities, and in doing so promote a complete 2020 Census count.

As leaders in the program, ambassadors will promote SIS events on social media platforms, network with fellow ambassadors, and receive exclusive 2020 Census promotional items for use in and outside the classroom.

Ideal candidates are active pre-K through 12th-grade teachers who are excited to spearhead an islandwide initiative at their schools while shaping the future of their community through social media, collaboration, and leadership. Reviewers will consider each applicant’s past leadership positions or interest in gaining experience, knowledge of SIS materials, and their presence on social media.

Teachers interested in becoming an SIS Ambassador must email [email protected] to apply by Sept. 30.
