Oakland Community Ambassadors

The Oakland Community Ambassadors are a group of Pitt students who aim to engage with the Pitt and local communities through programming and service initiatives to create a safer, healthier, greener, and better-connected Oakland. The ambassadors work with off-campus students and neighbors to better understand, support, and collaborate with the Oakland community.

The ambassadors work in 5 different teams, or zones, approximately representing the neighborhoods in Oakland. These include:

  • North Oakland
  • South Oakland
  • West Oakland
  • Central Oakland
  • Oakcliffe

You can find the ambassadors who represent your area walking around with information, resources, and swag! 


Use the live chat feature on this website to contact an ambassador!
