Be a STEAM Mentor

Be the Change, Become a Mentor

Our next opportunity to mentor will be forthcoming in Fort Collins, CO. The event will connect mentors and girls to address some of girls’ most pressing questions. These include how to find and apply for summer internships, institutes, and jobs; how to accelerate English as a second language to access higher-level math and science; blending STEAM disciplines; and how to navigate college admissions and scholarships. Leading professionals and graduate students will mentor girls ages 13 to 18.

Mentor orientation has passed for this event; however, you are welcome to preregister for upcoming mentoring opportunities. Ready to start? Let’s make it happen.

A Mentor Will Shift How a Girl Sees Her Abilities and Herself

In a recent LinkedIn study, 82 percent of women professionals called mentoring — being a mentor and being mentored — a critical component of their success.

If you are an individual or group representative who would love to work with the next gen of thinkers and problem-solvers, decision-makers and leaders, let’s connect. Include your name, contact info, and where you are located.
