Summer Volunteers Needed
We are so excited to offer virtual STEM summer camps to young women, but we depend on our volunteers to help make this experience impactful, engaging and fun! Will you please consider sharing your knowledge and expertise by being a virtual, or an onsite volunteer and help inspire middle and high school aged girls to consider choosing a career in STEM.
We believe that helping empower young women by describing your journey, as a STEM professional, as well as sharing the impact you have made in the world today will help them understand and apply STEM relevance to their everyday lives.
There are several volunteer opportunities from which you can choose. 2021 STEM Summer Camps begin in June and end in August. Our shifts are Tuesdays and Thursdays with 60 minute sessions, from 11am – Noon.
Most frequent questions and answers about our summer camp volunteers

Sure! We do however like to keep track of everyone that works with us. We also like to send thank you notes, so we will want their information. Let us know if you will be bringing more than yourself.
No you do not, but we will have a projector and computer available if you do have something you want to share. We think the girls enjoy seeing pictures and other types of show and tell.

More Opportunities to Volunteer
Every summer, we seek diverse women role models in STEM careers to meet and inspire our camp participants. It is critical that our students see possible career options demonstrated by people who look like them. Would you be willing to inspire young women in science and engineering?
