Chaski Pride Program 2021
To be selected as an Ambassador is an honor and excellent opportunity for personal and athletic development. Chaski Pride (Ambassadors) are a prized group of Chaski Community volunteers who serve as the face of the Chaski Endurance Collective brand and positively represent the company at events and online. They also provide feedback and ideas to Chaski as a whole as well as outreach to prospective and current athletes. Ambassadors possess strong interpersonal skills, leadership qualities, a genuine interest in meeting new people, and a sense of pride in the brand, our community, and mission.
Our mission is to empower athletes and foster community.
We want to empower athletes of all levels; this includes athletes whom we coach, our coaching staff, and the fans of the sport with whom we engage through our community outreach. To empower we use the following approaches:
Provide physical support - outstanding 1-on-1 coaching.
Provide emotional support - coaches and fellow athletes who will listen and encourage before and after any outcome.
Provide intellectual support - engaging informational content such as blogs, posts, and interviews.
To foster community, we want to connect athletes across the spectra of sporting specialty and ability, geographic location, and general walks of life. Our culture is inclusive. Directly our global community is made up of coaches, paying athletes, sponsors and non-coached fans. Indirectly it is all endurance athletes who may interact with the Chaski Collective.
