What is a Wellness Ambassador?

Wellness ambassadors play a vital role in supporting the promotion of health and wellness among CSS faculty and staff. As an ambassador, you will act as a liaison between your department and the CSS Faculty and Staff Wellness Program. Your role is to empower not overpower.  Keep messages positive and promote health and wellness!


What is the Wellness Ambassador Role?
Wellness ambassadors serve as CSS's key communicators of the wellness program helping to direct employees to wellness programs, activities, and resources. The role is voluntary with minimal time commitment (approximately 1 hour a month).

Acts of Kindness Ideas

Wikipedia says that a random act of kindness is: "a selfless act performed by a person or persons wishing to either assist or cheer up an individual... There will generally be no reason other than to make people smile, or be happier." What a better way to build a community of wellness than through acts of kindness.  The Acts of Kindness document provides easy and fun ways to brighten someones day.
