The El Paso Downtown Management District (DMD) is now taking applications for its new Downtown Welcome Ambassador Program.
“The amount of activity and visitors to our downtown continues to grow,” says DMD Executive Director Joe Gudenrath. “This program provides a welcome smile to our visitors and helps ensure that their experience downtown is a positive one. I’m confident this program will have a positive impact on the downtown experience and will grow along with downtown redevelopment.”
The program places friendly, identifiable, knowledgeable and trained ambassadors in public spaces to greet visitors, answer questions, provide maps, and assist people as needed.
The Downtown Management District is looking for self-motivated, energetic, and friendly people willing to work outdoors and assist visitors to Downtown El Paso.
The positions provide part-time, seasonal employment between 4 to 20 hours a week (Fridays-Sundays) depending on the time of year. The ability to communicate in English and Spanish is required. Ambassadors will be paid $10 per hour and go through extensive training on everything Downtown El Paso has to offer.
The program is expected to begin in late November.
Those interested in being Downtown El Paso’s first Welcome Ambassadors can obtain an application by calling 915-400-2294 or stopping by the DMD Office at 201 E. Main Street, Suite 107.
