We’re always hearing about opportunities for alumni to get involved with activities at the school, with the alumni association, or with the TJ Partnership Fund.
While the Alumni Association seeks volunteers for specific events, there are also ongoing opportunities to volunteer at the school, in the community on behalf of the school, and with the alumni association. If you’re interested in volunteering, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or fill out the volunteer interest form below.

The All Night Graduation Party or ANGP is a HUGE celebration that provides TJ graduates with a safe, drug-free, alcohol-free, fun environment after the graduation event. Essentially an all-night lock-in, the ANGP provides graduates with hours of fun, games, food, entertainment, raffles, a casino and more! It is a great opportunity to relax and enjoy time with their fellow graduates before they go off to college!

STEMbassadors can be alumni, parents, corporate sponsors, faculty, etc.
