WELL UnTapped will engage each participant in a Water Ambassadors project. Fellows will interact with local water experts to train and develop community ambassadors who promote conservation, resiliency, and smart water finance within their communities. WELL supports each fellow in accomplishing this goal by finding local experts familiar with the fellow’s region and water challenges. Facilitating the Water Ambassadors program requires that each fellow commit 4-8 hours of work/ month.
