A brief description of the program, including examples of peer-to-peer outreach activities:

Every year, the Sustainability Office recruits students to be part of our squad of Ambassadors.

They assist the Sustainability Office in the different outreach campaigns. Whether it be for waste management awareness activities, information on sustainable transportation for new students, volunteering during our Repair Cafés, they assist us in various activities and projects.


A brief description of how the student educators are selected:

Every year, in August, the Sustainability Office posts a job description. Students (undergraduate or graduate) are invited to apply. They send a CV and a cover letter. After an initial screening, they are provided with training documentation and have to pass a test.

Students may also joint the program during the year, upon request, according to the Office's needs. They are also hired after studying the documentation and passing a test.


A brief description of the formal training that the student educators receive to prepare them to conduct peer outreach:

A report sumarizing important information regarding outreach activities has been prepared and is sent to every new ambassador. They also have to be familiar with the content available on the Sustainability Office website (www.polymtl.ca/durable). At different times during the year, a "lunch and learn" is organised to provide them with new information and answer their questions.


A brief description of the financial and/or administrative support the institution provides to the program (e.g. annual budget and/or faculty/staff coordination):

The Sustainability Office receives a yearly budget to pay the student educators for their various mandates (hourly basis).
