2021 Pennsylvania STEM Ambassadors Program - Developing STEM Policy Leaders in Pennsylvania

 

The STEM Ambassador Program is a 10-month leadership training opportunity and a strategic way to advance state STEM/workforce policy goals through education, targeting relationships with policymakers, and building a coalition of local and regional support.

STEM Ambassadors are leaders within their organizations who are interested in and committed to sharing their experiences and content knowledge with influential stakeholders. They also serve as role models to inspire and encourage youth to pursue opportunities for STEM exploration in both formal and informal learning environments.

Ambassadors will have the opportunity to learn from recognized advocacy experts and STEM professionals about STEM policy, media outreach, relationship building, and leadership development.
