ITHACA, N.Y. — The History Center in Tompkins County and Historic Ithaca are partnering to provide the second Heritage Ambassador Training Program and have opened up registration for participants.

The Heritage Ambassador program provides a free, fun, and engaging training for participants to get to know Tompkins County’s history and rich heritage.

After the training, Heritage Ambassadors commit to:

1. Engaging county residents with the history of our unique community;

2. Assisting visitors to get the most out of their time in Tompkins County;

3. Volunteering for at least three events per year (e.g., HistoryForge Days, Old House tours, heritage tours, and Visit Ithaca and Discovery Trail events).

The Spring 2018 Heritage Ambassadors training is scheduled for six consecutive Wednesdays from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM, beginning February 28, 2018 and running through April 4, 2018.
