The Albany Area Chamber of Commerce is working to keep the brightest students in south Georgia after they graduate-- by connecting them with business leaders.

The Ambassadors program is adding some young volunteers. You may recognize the Ambassadors' green jackets at ribbon cuttings and chamber events.

The new young ambassadors will be identifiable by their blue vests.

 Albany State University, Darton College, and Albany Technical College each chose two students to represent them as young ambassadors.

"Not only are they coming out and they're interacting with the business community they're representing their institutes for higher education and there's only two from each," said Catherine Glover of the Albany Area Chamber of Commerce.

Four students received their vests Tuesday. Darton will choose their ambassadors later.

The program will connect students to the business community and give their schools representation at business events.
