Program Guidelines

Eligibility Requirements
JEA Ambassador Program will consider projects submitted by any organization, school, group, agency, church, homeowners association, etc which have been received a minimum of 2 weeks prior to the date of the event (Exceptions can be made at the discretion of the SLT, Director, Manager, Coordinator or Advisory Committee). The event or activity must allow for Ambassadors to engage, educate or provide information to JEA customers or potential customers and must take place within JEA service territory or a location where JEA customers will be or could potentially attend. Certain events or activities must have a minimum number or attendees in order for it to be worthy of JEA employees taking time away from normal work responsibilities (i.e., Facility Tours must have a minimum of 5 attendees)

The JEA Employee Ambassador Program is overseen by an employee Ambassador advisory committee that selects community volunteer activities. JEA considers participating in projects which are driven by the needs of the community and are collaborative projects between non-profit organizations in the JEA service area and accessible/open to the public. Project suggestions submitted by employees will also be reviewed by the advisory committee.

JEA Employee Ambassador Program does not provide support to events or activities that are outside of the JEA service area; events or activities that could be viewed as JEA support of a political party or candidate; events or activities that are deemed unsafe or offensive by the Ambassador Advisory Committee and could possible put JEA employees or others in harm’s way; any organization that discriminates on the basis of race, color, sex, religion, national origin, age, disability or veteran status; any organization that conducts itself in an unethical, illegal or immoral manner.

JEA reserves the right to turn down any requests that the JEA Employee Ambassador Advisory Committee feels does not agree with the Mission, Values and Goals of JEA.
