The Problem

The Ambassadors Program was launched in 2015 to build additional grassroots leadership across sangats in the United States to better address the diverse needs of the Sikh American community.

The Solution

By implementing the Ambassadors program, the Sikh Coalition has looked to identify Sikh servant-leaders who would like to enhance the Sikh American community’s fight for civil rights through grassroots leadership. Through this program, we are able to provide more timely and pertinent services to the community and also remain relevant to the community’s needs given the diverse contexts and realities of Sikh Americans throughout the country.

  • Ambassadors
  • different states
  • + Sikh awareness presentations and workshops

Impact

As grassroots leaders, Ambassadors serve in communities across the country and serve as liaisons, resources and extensions of the Sikh Coalition team for their local sangat. Since its implementation in 2015, the Ambassadors program has allowed us to bring the resources and knowledge of the Sikh Coalition to more of the community, while gleaming new insights and information regarding the needs of the community. Ambassadors have delivered anti-bullying presentations, organized youth empowerment workshops, spoken at interfaith events, and hosted gurdwara open houses for their broader communities.
