Toolkit: Becoming a Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) Mentor
Corporation for National and Community Service
President Obama has recognized the need to move students from the middle to the top of the pack in math and science as a national priority. Mentorship is often cited as a key strategy for exciting, supporting, and keeping students and young scientists and engineers in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). This is particularly true for individuals who haven't historically participated in these areas--such as young women and underrepresented minorities. Many community-based organizations do not have enough capacity to manage a large number of volunteers, so they need you to organize yourself in coordination with them. This tool kit is designed to either help you organize a group and be a positive addition to a community-based organization, or, if such an organization does not exist, to be a well-organized independently-run group that fills a needed gap in the community. (Contains 5 footnotes and 9 resources.)
