ACT Air Ambassador Program
The ACT Air Ambassador Program is a volunteer program designed to enable motivated residents of Central Texas to help their fellow residents to "Be Air Aware." This means helping fellow residents in Bastrop, Caldwell, Hays, Travis, and Williamson County understand:
- the importance of air quality as a feature of quality of life for the region
- the health and other environmental risks of regional air pollution
- how to protect themselves and people they care for from air pollution when it is high
- steps they can take to help improve air quality
ACT Air Ambassadors
ACT Air Ambassadors will engage with the public by attending events where they can hand out air quality information, give out promotional materials, answer questions from members of the public, and help with set-up and break down before and after the event.
ACT Air Ambassador Program Coordinators
Program coordinators are experienced volunteers that can help manage events and recruit other ambassadors. Coordinator responsibilities will include setting-up and breaking down events, being a point of contact for other Ambassadors, keeping count of the number of people reached at an event, and addressing questions that Ambassadors cannot answer. To become a Program Coordinator, you must have a meeting with a staff member to go over general air quality information, current air quality programs, and how to manage events.
If you are interested in volunteering to become a ACT Air Ambassador, fill out an application form and a release form and submit them to CAPCOG. A staff person will get in touch with you about upcoming volunteer opportunities.
- Fill out the Volunteer Application

- Submit both forms by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
