TJ Launches New STEMbassadors Outreach Program, Seeks Volunteers
Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology (TJ) launched the STEMbassadors program, aimed at inspiring the joy of learning at the prospect of discovery to younger populations. Volunteer at neighborhood school-based science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) efforts as well as TJ outreach events to help encourage excitement for science and math in younger students and reach out to populations underserved at TJ.
STEMbassadors are predominantly TJ students, but also include other area high school students, TJ parents, alumni and corporate partners who work alongside us in promoting STEM. TJ seeks adult volunteers to aid in the execution of the program. A STEMbassador liaison is an adult TJ community member that builds a relationship with a local school's STEM contact in order to foster volunteerism at the neighborhood school and promote outreach activities at TJHSST.
