The STEM Ambassador Programme is a nationwide scheme dedicated to getting more young people interested in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Maths) subjects leading to an increase in young people pursuing STEM careers.
The most valuable tool young people have at their disposal when considering future career paths are the people around them, and we believe that STEM Ambassadors can be their greatest source of inspiration.
Do you work in a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) industry? Do you have a passion for a particular STEM subject? Are you interested in passing this information onto young people?
If the answer is yes, become a STEM Ambassador! STEM Ambassadors are volunteers that aim to inspire young people to become interested in STEM subjects and consider a career in a STEM industry.
You could help run an experiment or design your own. You could mentor students in a variety of subjects or get involved in a careers event. You could help run an engineering project or design some fun maths games. You could set up a STEM club or run a tech evening at a brownie/cub group. There are lots of options!
If you are interested please register on the database db.stemnet.org.uk or check out the website www.aberdeensciencecentre.org/stem-ambassadors/ . If you have any queries please feel free to contact me at email@example.com . Once you have registered, you will be required to attend an induction where you will complete a PVG – Protection of Vulnerable Groups scheme application along with meeting other new STEM Ambassadors. We hope to hear from you soon.
As the requirement to be able to use technology increases, many individuals find themselves excluded from the opportunities available as a result of their lack of digital awareness. In order to address this inequality I am looking for digital awareness volunteers, who you would be required to attend local sessions throughout the city showing members of the public how to use and get the best from their own digital devices.
In addition to this, along with other volunteers and staff you would represent Adult Learning at various Digital Awareness events. These sessions and events would be on an ad hoc basis at times convenient to the volunteers.
Good training and support is provided to all volunteers.
A fantastic opportunity to help and make a difference with people and local communities in Aberdeen. All help is greatly appreciated.

EF- Education First has exciting opportunities to volunteer with us as an International Exchange Coordinator. This very worthwhile and interesting opportunity involves:
Part 1: A Finder
To find host families and school places for our students aged 16-17 years, who come to our country for a year beginning. Host families are generally found through word of mouth, leaflets in community places, editorials etc.
Part 2: A Placer
After finding a caring family who really want to host you will then need to speak to your Regional Manager. We have found that the best way to place a student is really to get to know your host family, their likes and dislikes, hobbies, smokers or not and their location.
Part 3: A Supervisor
Another major part of being a coordinator, and indeed a most interesting side to the role, is the supervision and support of the student, host family and the school.
Part 4: A Trainer
A major part of the role is to give full information to your host families, your students and your schools.
Part 5: A World Ambassador
If all the above simple stages are followed you will have an interesting and fulfilling experience. You will have lifelong friends from around the world and within your own country and community.
A fantastic opportunity to help and to make a real difference. For further details please contact:
