Outreach Ambassadors

One of our programs that focuses specifically on reaching targets of our Outreach endeavors is our Outreach Ambassador program. Consisting of both high school students and university undergraduates, our Outreach Ambassadors promote our organization and our many initiatives in their local communities, as well as, aiding in getting more students across Canada involved and aware of our programs through online means.  Our ambassadors work with their own respective regional teams to collaborate on region-specific outreach projects, as well as acting as representatives of the organization at promotional booths at STEM-related events. They also participate in providing the organization’s executives with feedback on our program development so that we can obtain authentic student opinions and concerns to address the needs that our programs may have yet to meet.

This way of making alterations to the program allows STEM Fellowship Executives to tailor what goes on within the ambassadors for the ambassadors, resulting in the organization being able to efficiently identify and address any issues. Outreach Ambassadors are also integral to STEM Fellowship through participation in other outreach endeavors such as reaching out to external organizations to initiate the communication for mutually beneficial partnerships.

For any questions and/or concerns, please contact christy.chan@stemfellowship.org.

TESTIMONIALS

We have asked our ambassadors for their thoughts and feedback on STEM Fellowship and their experience as an outreach ambassador for their respective regional teams. Below are some testimonials from what our ambassadors have to say about the program.

“My experience as an outreach ambassador has been great. There are meetings that are very informative, and working towards completing a project for the scientific community is amazing. Letting other students, in my grade and below, know about the scientific opportunities that the STEM Fellowship offers is extremely helpful to them.”

- Benjamin Chung

Outreach Ambassador

“The STEM Fellowship Outreach Ambassador program has been an invaluable opportunity for me to volunteer within the STEM community and gain organizational skills while also networking with like-minded individuals. Being part of a team has given me experience with fulfilling responsibilities and meeting deadlines, and I have learned many valuable lessons along the way. Helping to develop and promote STEM opportunities has allowed me to express my love for STEM subjects and share my knowledge with others who have less experience. I definitely recommend this program to any student with an interest in STEM and a willingness to share their passion with others.”

- Raphael Kelly

Hi everyone, my name is Ananya and I joined STEM Fellowship as an Outreach Ambassador this past year! It’s been an amazing experience for me; learning new techniques to enhance my knowledge as well as leadership skills in a STEM setting has been a key takeaway. Hosting a webinar along with my peers has been a highlight of this role. If you are an individual who enjoys exploring a variety of STEM fields, this is a great opportunity to carve yourself into a leader.

- Ananya Nandiraju

Outreach Ambassador

“STEM Fellowships Outreach Ambassador Program is one I am forever grateful to be a part of. I am able to be part of a community of like-minded peers where we are given many opportunities to grow in our communication and leadership skills. With my team, we were able to create and host a research webinar, allowing me to not only practice my investigative skills while finding information to present but also allowed me to practice public speaking. If you have the opportunity, I say join the ambassador program, you will not regret it.”

- Emilie de Chantal

Outreach Ambassador

I’ve been an Outreach Ambassador with STEM Fellowship for almost a year, and the experience has genuinely been rewarding! From initiating events like our Diversity in STEM webinar to our STEM Codes competition, the opportunity to collaborate with a province-wide team of passionate STEM enthusiasts has been incredible. I’ve also learned a lot about various STEM themes through promoting STEM Fellowship’s exciting events, and developed technical skills like partnership email writing and research—truly very beneficial for an aspiring STEM student like me!”

- Matthew Wong
