Wikimedians of Nepal/Wiki Wikipedia Education Program Nepal/Wikipedia Ambassador Program
Wikipedia Ambassador Program is supportive program for Wikipedia Education Program (WEP). The Wikipedia Ambassadors are volunteers who work with teachers, educators and student in WEP. Ambassadors support educators and students in doing assignments, help on editing and evaluate student contributions and give feedback to them.
Roles of Ambassador
Campus Ambassadors are students, staff, faculty, and local residents who provide face-to-face Wikipedia training and support on university campuses.
Regional Ambassadors serve in a leadership capacity in the Wikipedia Ambassador program. They are in charge of Campus Ambassador training, coordinating professor check-in, coordinating Campus Ambassador performance and facilitating communication among different stakeholders (professors, Campus Ambassadors, Online Ambassadors, Wikimedia staff, etc.).
Online Ambassadors are, first and foremost, experienced Wikipedia editors who are interested in helping new student editors during their classroom assignments.

To become Ambassador, the community sets criteria. For Nepal, students who have gone through any online course or have achieved Wikipedia Driving License will be eligible to apply. The community will select the required ambassadors on the basis of their interest to serve the community, organizing education events, wiki skills and presentation skills.
