Be a Challenger Cultural Ambassador!

Returning families we need your support. We are looking for additional Cultural Ambassadors. Please consider volunteering for this important role. YOU can make a difference to families who are new to the area, Issaquah School District and the Challenger community. As an Ambassador you will serve as a contact person to answer questions and help our new families feel welcome at Challenger and to our community. You don't have to know all the answers, just be a welcoming resource for them. Some of our Ambassadors also support with translations.

If your interested in being a Cultural Ambassador please sign up here
