WVU Stem Ambassadors act as science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) instructors and camp/cabin counselors during 4-H summer camps and events across the state of West Virginia. Given training and materials, ambassadors travel throughout the state during the time frame of May 21, 2017 to August 11, 2017 and deliver pre-arranged STEM curriculum in a variety of settings. Events may include county 4-H day or overnight camps, summer youth program sites, state 4-H camps located at Jackson’s Mill in Jane Lew, WV, the West Virginia State Fair located in Lewisburg, WV, and State 4-H Days on the WVU campus in Morgantown. Room and board is provided while on assignment at camp, but ambassadors must be able to provide their own transportation to locations across West Virginia. Ambassadors will have the opportunity to work up to 30 days during the May 21 through August 11, 2017 timeframe with additional opportunities possible based on need and availability.
See the position announcement and application form for full details of the responsibilities and qualifications of a STEM Ambassador, how to apply for the position, and the pay. This is an awesome opportunity for STEM majors/minors to continue the work in your field of study outside of the classroom.
Applications received by March 13, 2017 will be given first priority. Applications received after that date will only be considered if open positions exist.
