On behalf of the The Reach Initiative, the Women's Center is excited to share this opportunity!! Read on!
The Reach Initiative is a mentorship research program for high school women who are interested in entering into the STEM fields. Our team is currently looking for a diverse range of majors and people to serve on our planning committees and mentors to work directly with our young women.
The Reach Initiative is currently looking for women who are pursuing degrees in the STEM field or Environmental Science and who exhibit a passion and commitment to gender empowerment, the maths and sciences, and diversity. Mentors will volunteer Saturdays for 3 hours a week on campus with the possibility of receiving credit through the Honors College and/or Shriver Center.
In addition, we are always looking for members who might be interested in being part of our planning committees. We have two focus groups, Gender Woman Studies & Psychology, who work on our empowerment programming and program evaluations. Our second is our STEM focus group, they organize the STEM student orgs who lead workshops, brainstorm potential research topics, and offer support and guidance to any scholar and mentor that needs help. If you are a passionate and creative individual who enjoys event-planning and gender empowerment, we would love to work with you.
We are interviewing and accepting mentors on a rolling basis, so if you are interested in being one, we would encourage you to apply ASAP. You can find the application here (https://llang1.wufoo.com/forms/reach-mentor-application/), and if you're interested in being a member of the planning committee (STEM or GWST/Psych), please message firstname.lastname@example.org
If you can't do either, we would appreciate it so much if you could like our page (https://www.facebook.com/Reachinitaitive) and/or share it with your networks so that we can share the stories of our young women and mentors across the community.
