Community Eclipse Ambassador Program
This program provides community organizations tools including educational opportunities, training and equipment in preparation for the eclipse. The goal of the program is to excite and educate the public, through Wabash Valley organizations that serve families.
In total, 30 organizations were chosen via an application process with half the sites being located in Terre Haute and the others in the surrounding counties of Clay, Sullivan, Vermillion, Parke in Indiana, and Clark in Illinois.
Participating ambassadors (and the organizations they represent) were be provided equipment, including a telescope with a solar viewing filter, educational materials, solar viewing glasses and materials for activities. Each organization will receive a $1,000 stipend for participation. This stipend is meant to offset the costs of hosting or participating in events where the Community Eclipse Ambassadors provide educational opportunities.
