Participants in the CPI Junior Ambassador Program embody the spirit of giving back through fundraising and community service efforts in support the CPI Scholarship and Educational Fund. Their work helps to raise awareness among student riders about the educational, competition and scholarship opportunities available to college bound students at the CPI events.

Through the CPI Jr. Ambassador Program, volunteers in grades 5-12 have an opportunity to gain valuable knowledge through a year long, hands-on learning experience that includes all aspects of managing a series of successful events. Mentored by professionals and working as part of a cohesive team, participants in the program will develop valuable business and life skills including:  time management and communication skills, fund raising, event planning, promotions and media relations.

Jr. Ambassadors are required to spend 5 community service hours at the CPI horse show they are attending where they are competing.  There they will have the opportunity to assist with every detail from serving as aids for judges and show managers, working in the CPI barn, preparing participant gift bags, registering riders and coaches at the event, performing clerical, data entry and office work, setting up tables and banners, helping colleges to set up their display tables, manage the silent auction, distribution of ribbons and prizes at the horse show ring and more.

Our Credit Formula
The CPI Junior Ambassador Program uses this formula to calculate the community service hour value against the dollars raised by CPI Junior Ambassadors:

  • Ambassadors will receive 1 community service hour for the first $25 raised.
  • Each additional increment of $15 raised will earn the Ambassador an additional service hour.
