Student Ambassador Mission

The New Jersey Tech Council’s Student Ambassador Program’s mission is to increase the Council’s presence on college campuses and student involvement in our many events. Through Student Ambassadors the Council reaches out to the next generation of leaders in New Jersey in order to cultivate an interest in Council’s mission of providing business support, networking opportunities, education, advocacy, and recognition of tech and life science companies and their leaders.

What is a Tech Council Student Ambassador?

The Tech Council Student Ambassador reaches out and engages with fellow students and their surrounding community to introduce and help build the Tech Council’s community presence. Ambassadors will help their community become more familiar with the Council events, and its mission. This is done by promoting the Tech Council through regular social media posts, sharing relevant announcements about Council with classmates, and sharing information with professors or advisors.

The Tech Council would like to showcase some of our top-achieving Student Ambassadors and some of their accomplishments.

The New Jersey Tech Council is seeking to raise awareness on college campuses of technology and innovation.

The Council, a nonprofit trade association, wants to reach out to the next generation of leaders in the state and get them involved in the technology and entrepreneurial ecosystems (One-Page Flyer.pdf). Ambassadors will be emailed weekly with tasks, suggestions and updates.
