Hello from iPraxis!

My name is Bill Shorts, and I’m the newly-minted volunteer manager for our wonderful organization. Founded in 2004 by educator and businessman Jeremiah White, iPraxis seeks to inspire middle school students from backgrounds underrepresented in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) to GET INTERESTED AND ENGAGED in science!

It is my understanding that you either have a history with us, or you have recently reached out regarding interest in volunteering for our organization - more importantly - for our students.

We need folks like you right away. I have attached a flyer that explains in brief our current projects, along with a volunteer background screening how-to document (much of which can and should be conducted very quickly, online).

Please visit and our volunteer page, where you’ll find our sign-up page - -- also, please call me at 215-966-6254 at your earliest convenience, so that I may field any questions and we may get to know one another a bit.

Thanks again!

Bill Shorts
