Mentors & Coaches


Help Change the Face of STEM

DC Metro area STEM professionals who represent diverse backgrounds and experiences can make a positive impact in the lives of our members as well as change the trajectory for their academic success. Parent-Coaches, Collegiate and Professional STEM Mentors are crucial assets to our membership of future engineers, scientists, mathematicians & techies.    


Reverse the Achievement Gap

Mentoring students in the STEM fields is crucial to reversing the achievement gap for African American students and others, like girls, who are under-served in STEM. Partnering with mentors’ representative of fields across the STEM professions will ensure that our students see themselves in the professions they wish to pursue; it will also open avenues to achievement for our young scientists. This encouragement will help them thrive in nearly all STEM settings - especially girls who want to study math or the sciences.
