Community Ambassadors Program
What is the Community Ambassadors Program?
The Community Ambassadors Program is a safety program designed to bridge tensions in the community due to cultural or linguistic differences. Administered by the Office of Civic Engagement & Immigrant Affairs (OCEIA), a division of the City Administrator’s Office, this program was initiated by community leaders and advocates concerned about public safety and is a partnership with the Omega Boys Club, SFPD, MTA, Mayor’s Office, OCEIA and community-based organizations, with partial program support from the Lennar Corporation.
OCEIA currently manages Community Ambassador teams in four key areas of San Francisco: Southeast neighborhoods (Visitacion Valley, Bayview, Portola), Mid-Market/Tenderloin, Chinatown and the Mission.
