The Explore Alliance Ambassadors (EAA) program lends support and brings focus to motivated organizations and individual volunteers who inspire the communities they serve. These entities work tirelessly to increase awareness and understanding of science and nature for the general public through a variety of methods. We are currently taking applications from those involved in interpreting astronomy, biology, and ornithology.
Why We Do It
Most ambassador programs sponsored by companies are "Brand Ambassador" programs: People are hired by a company to represent a brand in a positive light to increase brand awareness and sales. Brand ambassador programs require exclusivity, meaning that the ambassador is not allowed to work for competing companies at the same time. Don't get us wrong, as a company we are honored when people choose our gear- do great work with it, and are happy to let others know.
But the fact is that Explore Scientific as a company would not exist without the overall explorer/educational community that supports our industry. Therefore, the Explore Alliance Ambassadors is an inclusive program with benefits from Explore Scientific.
The Explore Alliance Ambassadors program is about the people and organizations that are nurturing and sustaining the community, which we feel is far more important, with life-changing and far-reaching effects. We feel it is our responsibility to give support to the community that supports us.
