FAQ

Most frequent questions and answers about our summer camp volunteers

Absolutely! The girls love it when you bring swag from your company, or any type of trinket. Certainly not required, though. Contact us before your shift to verify the number of participants.

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. We welcome anyone that is eager to inspire, though we do want lots of great female role models to introduce to the girls.

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.

Yes! We are more than happy to coordinate the lunch if you’d like to make a donation to sponsor it. If you want to plan it yourself, then please let us know. Lunch costs ~$200-300, depending on the size of the group.

Want to be a strong STEM role model? Of course! Check out resources here, and watch a training video here.

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? 

How can you help?

  • Serve as a guest speaker on most Tuesdays and Thursdays during June and July from 11:30-12:15. All you need to do is share your personal story.
  • Recruit diverse women to also serve as guest speakers.

Opportunity Locations

Various camp locations across Texas including Austin, Dallas, Fort Worth, Mesquite, Richardson, Duncanville, and Grand Prairie.

We currently operate on 100% donations, and the number of students we serve is therefore 100% dependent on much money we annually raise! 

How can you help?

  • Making connections and developing relationships with corporate, community and family foundations.
  • Learning of corporate, community and family foundation grant opportunities.
  • Increasing the number of donations received by individual donors.
  • Hosting events that attract and retain donors.

Will you help us increase our capacity to serve more young women? Will you help us inspire the next generation of problem-solvers that will change our world? We can’t do it without you.

We are a small staff of only part-time employees, and apart from planning and scaling our work, sometimes communications falls to a lesser priority. We do recognize, however, that communication is key to supporting our goals and increasing awareness of our work.

How can you help?

  • Guest blogging for our website on topics related to women and girls in STEM.
  • Sharing things that we post on our social media channels, and help generating great content to share.
  • Doing basic video editing so that we have more small clips to share.
  • Generating content for newsletters.
  • Sharing our work with industry and community partners so that we can utilize other channels and networks.
  • Reaching and getting coverage by news media, including television, radio, and print.

Will you help us share the stories of young women who’ve been transformed by their summer experiences with us? Will you help us reach more young women who would benefit from our programs? Will you help us increase public awareness of our work?

We are considering developing a working volunteer Advisory Board to support us as we grow. This board will be different than our Board of Directors, and will be somewhat informal with no legal or fiduciary responsibilities.

How can you help?

We would like to include people who have the following skill sets:

  • Integrated STEM curriculum development
  • Educational Equity
  • Fundraising
  • Grant writing
  • Marketing
  • eCommerce
  • Communications
