Airport Ambassador Program
Looking for reliable and committed individuals to volunteer in a dynamic and fast-paced airport environment. Ambassadors interact with passengers and provide information regarding airport services and the Greater Fort Lauderdale area. Applicants should be able to work well with people, assist others, and have good communication skills.
"AmbassaDogs" (Therapy Dog) Program
We are recruiting for certified therapy dogs and handlers to visit passengers awaiting flights. Pet friendly travelers will enjoy interacting with warm, wet noses, and wagging tails. "AmbassaDogs" help to create a friendly, relaxing atmosphere and often relieve anxiety caused at an airport.
Terminal Tunes Entertainment Program
This compensated program offers entertainers and visual artists the opportunity to showcase their talent before an audience of more than 23 million airport passengers annually. The entertainers provide a relaxing and fun-filled environment for passengers.
Various opportunities are also open to students in the 11th grade or higher (including college). The Aviation Department internship provides hands-on experience in several areas depending upon the student’s area of study and future aspirations (Aviation industry not required). These are paid and unpaid positions. Students can use this program for service hours.
Other activities include refreshments, live entertainment, and giveaways. Attendees will also learn about other Aviation Department employment opportunities.
