We need YOU to help us connect with next year’s Shads. Join the Ambassador Community and keep that Shad-spirit pumping!

Last year, Shad Ambassadors from coast to coast helped inspire and recruit over 1,000 curious and determined problem-solvers to apply for the summer of a lifetime. 

Looking to make that kind of impact?

Here’s how you can help:

  • Give presentations – host a Shad info session at your school, in your community, or virtually! Shad makes it easy.
  • Talk to teachers & guidance counselors – let your school know about virtual demos and Q&As. Contact to book a meeting with our Recruitment Lead, Mallory.
  • Be social – post about Shad on social media! Tag @ShadProgram, use #Shad2022 and #ShadAmbassador, and showcase Shad to your followers.
  • Write testimonials – tell others the impact of your Shad experience. 
  • Spread the word – share posters, videos, and other Shad materials to your network and let them know about this opportunity

Why be a Shad Ambassador?

Share Your Story:

I applied to go to Shad because I wanted to be part of a group of young changemakers and meet other young women like me who are ready to empower the STEAM field.

Inspire the Next Generation of Shads:

I would love to be an ambassador at my school, especially in a school downtown… As much as I can help out the program, I’d love to, just because it’s really changed me too.
