Stem Mentoring logo

STEM Mentoring is an ongoing mentorship program for girls, young women and non-binary youth ages 9 to 13.

Rooted in the belief that girls cannot be what they cannot see, STEM Mentoring is about more than just building girls' interest in skills in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) - it's about building strong, healthy relationships with other girls and mentors (who just so happen to be amazing women working in our community in the STEM field)!

Monday, June 12, 2017 (all day) to Tuesday, June 12, 2018 (all day)
