Phase III Scholars & Ambassadors
Phase III Scholars are completing high school or transitioning to college. Throughout the year, they communicate with other Scholars, Ambassadors, and Mentors and participate in DO-IT activities. Some become Interns at DO-IT Summer Study and participate in other work experiences. Once 2018 Summer Study was over, those Phase III Scholars who graduated from high school became DO-IT Ambassadors. DO-IT Ambassadors are pursuing postsecondary studies and careers. They share their experiences with DO-IT Scholars and Pals, encouraging them to pursue their goals in college and employment. All Scholars and Ambassadors can communicate with each other at firstname.lastname@example.org, and with all Scholars, Pals, Ambassadors, and Mentors at email@example.com.
