The Rutgers 4?H STEM Ambassador Program is an excellent opportunity for teens to learn about STEM, develop as a leader in their community, and prepare for college. The program is for college-bound youth entering 8–10th grade in the fall of 2022 from the urban communities in the Trenton area. We are are looking for students with a strong interest in STEM and college—GPA of "B" or better, top 25% of class, interested in volunteering in their local community to assist 4?H with STEM programs for other youth—in afterschool, Saturday, or summer programs.
During this program, student will gain valuable skills from a year-round, multi-year STEM enrichment program, meet Rutgers scientists and engineers (professors, staff, and graduate students). Participate in research projects, lab tours, workshops, and field trips. Take part in leadership and personal development activities. Lead STEM activities for other youth. Experience Rutgers through virtual and in person programs. Get to know like-minded students from across the state.
