Who are STEMbassadors?
STEMbassadors carry forward the mission of Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology to schools in the region. STEM is an acronym for Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics. STEMbassadors volunteer at neighborhood school-based STEM efforts as well as TJ outreach events aimed at inspiring the joy of learning at the prospect of discovery to younger populations. 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.
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. The STEMbassador liaison can be a parent, alumnus, parent of an alumnus, teacher, corporate partner, and anyone else who knows TJ pretty well, along with their neighborhood elementary or middle school. If you have general questions about the STEMbassadors program, please contact email@example.com.
How do I become a STEMbassador?
If you are a TJ student and want to become a student STEMbassador, check the Monday 8th period listings for upcoming meetings related to your base school or school district location. If you are not a TJ student, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org and describe your interest. If you are interested in becoming a TJ stembassador liaison, please contact Eric Males. If you already are an appointed STEMbassador liaison, you might be interested in accessing the STEMbassador liaison portal (user name and password required). If you are a school-based STEM contact, please notify Amos Simms-Smith about your interest to connect with a STEMbassador liaison.

How do I obtain volunteer support from student STEMbassadors?
STEMbassador liaisons have a network of neighborhood students and student organizations to obtain volunteers. If you are a teacher or community-based STEM organizer, you should first contact your local elementary school STEM contact by phone because that person likely has a relationship with the STEMbassador liaison.
