VPOST is excited to announce our 2023-2024 cohort of TWENTY STEM Youth Ambassadors! VPOST has begun guiding our STEM Ambassadors through creating and telling their unique stories through a series of monthly sessions, between June and November 2023 and January-February 2024.
During our time together, ambassadors are learning about different ways to share their stories to promote more support for Afterschool STEM programs. The program follows a cycle of the Virginia General Assembly season from election campaigns in the summer, through the November elections and into the start of the Virginia General Assembly session. The STEM Youth Ambassador program leads up to an advocacy day at the Virginia General Assembly in Richmond, VA in early 2024. Here Ambassadors will meet representatives and their staff to share their STEM stories.
