Interested in STEM volunteering?
In partnership with Entrust and the City Learning Trust, the Vintage Volunteers team are piloting an innovative new project. We’re looking for STEM enthusiasts aged 60+ with a variety of skills and backgrounds. With their help as valuable volunteers in schools, we hope to make a big difference for local students. By supporting young people between 11 and 18, we want to improve the understanding of STEM subjects and increase access to STEM careers.
What does being a STEM Ambassador involve?
STEM Ambassadors enhance and enrich the learning of STEM subjects by sharing their interests, skills and experience. Ambassadors can get involved in a variety of casual activities. We think they can make a big impact on young people’s learning by:
- supporting lessons by bringing real-world problems for pupils to experience and solve;
- giving careers talks or demonstrations; and
- helping schools make connections with local employers and industry resources.
Want to get involved?
Do you have an interest or background in Science, Technology, Engineering or Maths? Would you be willing to share your skills and experiences as a STEM ambassador? By taking part in STEM volunteering you could make help young people in our most deprived communities.
Sounds like your cup of tea? Then we want to hear from you!
