While potential is equally available, opportunities are not always equitably distributed. Because we recognize this, we are redistributing social capital by amplifying justice-oriented STEM practices. STEM Signing Day Mentors provides a break from structural norms and individualized thinking.
We encourage and engage students to draw away from racial, gender, and other embedded social and cultural biases, enabling youth to champion their wealth of diversity and thoughtful, demonstrable futuristic ideas. The holistic approach we take allows us to faithfully disrupt invisible structures while creating a communal culture to address the importance of youth identity by adopting values for a sustainable program via guidance, motivation, emotional support, and role modeling. We are closing the mentoring gap and holding the door of opportunity open.
This program provides STEM Signing Day recipients and alum with support on their academic and career pursuits. STEM Signing Day Mentors will be a viable and incredible resource.
Next Session TBA
The STEM Signing Day Mentorship Program is a great opportunity for professionals and students to form connections that can lead to tremendous personal growth for both the mentor and mentee.
In these sessions we discuss the timeline of the program, ways that mentors can be a resource to mentees, and more information about how to get involved.
