Youth Ambassadors: The Eyes and Ears of Deer District During Game 5 of NBA Playoffs
During the NBA playoffs, the Milwaukee Bucks have been drawing huge crowds to the Deer District, an outdoor space located just outside of Fiserv Forum. As thousands of fans gather to watch the games on giant screens, the Bucks have enlisted the help of a group of youth ambassadors to help keep the area safe and enjoyable for everyone.
The youth ambassadors, who are between the ages of 16 and 24, are responsible for helping to manage the crowds, provide directions and assistance to visitors, and act as the “eyes and ears” of the Deer District. They are trained in conflict resolution and de-escalation techniques and are equipped with radios to communicate with security personnel and event staff.
For Game 5 of the NBA playoffs, the youth ambassadors played a vital role in helping to ensure that the Deer District remained a safe and welcoming environment for fans. They were stationed throughout the area, working in teams to patrol the crowd and assist with any issues that arose.
Many of the youth ambassadors expressed pride in their role as ambassadors for the city and for the Bucks organization. They saw their work as an opportunity to give back to the community and to help promote a positive image of Milwaukee.
As the Milwaukee Bucks continue their playoff run, the youth ambassadors will continue to play an important role in helping to manage the crowds and keep the Deer District a safe and enjoyable space for all.
