The Goodwill Ambassador Program

The City of Miami Beach established the Goodwill Ambassador Program in 2001 as part of our major events plan to assist the City during major events and holiday weekends. The City of Miami Beach works closely with Miami-Dade County’s Office of Community Relations to expand the program.

The Goodwill Ambassador Team is comprised of civilian volunteers: City of Miami Beach employees and Miami-Dade County employees and clergy (God Squad). None of the volunteers are law enforcement officers.

The concept is a combination of several successful citizen involved crowd control concepts that have been tried and tested in many cities and states throughout the country. The primary role of this team is to serve as a liaison between the City and the visitors to provide information and help visitors remain informed on pertinent laws and dispel any confusion.

Goodwill Ambassadors will wear T-shirts identifying them as a Miami Beach Goodwill Ambassador. The God Squad wears bright red T-shirts identifying them as members of the Miami Beach God Squad, and the County will wear red/orange T-shirts with the Miami Beach Goodwill Ambassador logo. Ambassadors are volunteers and do not receive monetary compensation; however, some do receive administrative time for time worked.

Anyone interested in joining the teams, should contact Barbara Hawayek at 305-604-2488.
