S.I.O. Ambassador Program

 

STEM Inspiration Organization Background:

STEM Inspiration Organization is a non-profit organization joined by high school students in the Greater-Boston Area. Our mission is to enlighten the minds of youth to the many opportunities that the STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) field has to offer. We hope to help students with all backgrounds in the community to discover their STEM passion and potential. To achieve this, we host events that we invite speakers who are well-versed in the STEM field to come and talk. We also spark students' interests in the STEM field by supporting them through the interview program to connect them with professionals in those fields. Participants gain valuable experience by interacting with experts in a variety of areas.

S.I.O. Ambassadors’ mission:

The S.I.O. ambassador program reaches out to students who are interested in the STEM/Business fields and want to live out an impact.​

  • STEM Division: An opportunity to showcase student’s leadership and explore entrepreneurship in the real world!

    • The STEM Division serves as an unparalleled platform for students to explore their ideas and turn problems into solutions. For example, a student interested in exploring science communication can organize a workshop to gain a deeper understanding of the topic and support other passionate young minds in the region. S.I.O. ambassadors will become the leaders in their own projects and organize different events/programs. With the full support from S.I.O. team and access to S.I.O. resources, students aim to improve the communities around them.

  • Business Division: A window to oversee professional management and exposure to early business skills.
