Thank you for your interest in serving as a Quest Ambassador!
The Quest Ambassador program is administered by QuestBridge and the Quest Scholars Network. Quest Ambassadors provide outreach and recruitment assistance for our programs and are passionate about providing younger students with the same opportunities from which they benefited. We believe Quest Ambassadors are our best spokespeople.
To be a Quest Ambassador, the only requirement is that you are a Quest Scholar. You are not committing to any specific volunteer time as an Ambassador -- rather, by signing up below, you will be emailed about campaigns and opportunities to be involved at your own will as an Ambassador. You can sign up to join our mailing list at any time!

As a rising sophomore at Princeton University, Nick is a pre-med student from northern California and is very honored to serve on this board. He is excited by the Ambassadors Program and tells us, "QuestBridge rules!"
Wilmer is the CEO & Founder of Leaders Working, a nationwide mentoring program, and also serves as the Quest Liasion for Williams College where he is an English and History major. With Leaders Working and QuestBridge, Wilmer aims to empower low-income students to get into top colleges and become leaders in their communities.
Born in China but adopted as a baby, Kiki has lived in Massachusetts for as long as she can remember. She is currently embarking on a thrilling 4-year journey at Washington and Lee University in the beautiful state of Virginia, and she intends to major in Politics and Studio art and minor in Poverty and Human Capability Studies. She chooses to live a fulfilling life by sticking to a few basic principles: be kind (not least of all to yourself), do what you can for others, look for beauty everywhere, eat dessert first, sleep often, and just keep calm and let it go.
The National Ambassadors Executive Board's
"QuestBridge has changed the lives of thousands of low-income high school students. This year, we all felt compelled to help further develop our amazing community of Quest Scholars by strengthening the Ambassadors Program. As it currently exists, we realize that there are some areas for us to help the program to expand -- such as with improved regional coordination, more integrated social media, and new ways to inform more guidance counselors, educators, parents, and students about the many opportunities QuestBridge has to offer. We look forward to increasing the presence of the Ambassadors Program within the broader Quest Scholars Network (look out for upcoming chapter competitions!), but most importantly we hope to engage even more with the students we reach out to."
