The Uspiritus Ambassador Council

Uspiritus Ambassador Council is a group of young professionals who serve as thoughtful leaders, advisers and advocates for Uspiritus, as well as increase awareness of the organization within the larger Louisville community.

In addition, Ambassadors create and implement new events and projects geared towards attracting young professionals to the organization.


The Uspiritus Ambassador Council just had an incredible first year of fund and friend-raising for Uspiritus and we’re looking to expand! We’ve got big plans for 2018, including “Brains, Brews & Bragging Rights – trivia night”, 2018 KDF miniMarathon for Uspiritus & The Forecastle Festival!
