I Am Mobile! Tourism Ambassador Program

I am Mobile! new


About the Program: 
 
The I Am Mobile! Tourism Ambassador Program will equip attendees to be an expert on all things Mobile, covering history, the arts, eco-tourism, Mardi Gras, and more! Through this program, attendees will become certified ambassadors and be an integral part of improving the visitor experience simply by knowing and loving more about Mobile. The goal is to further educate Mobilians about their own city, create ambassadors that will help advance tourism in our area and ultimately increase visitor numbers, return visits, and visitor spending. The knowledge and skills gained from this program can be utilized to further both the tourism industry as a whole and ambassador's personal careers. Become inspired about the Mobile area through the I Am Mobile! Tourism Ambassador Program!
