4-H Tech Wizards is a group mentoring program that focuses on the importance of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics) education and careers. Mentors and mentees meet weekly for two hours at a regularly scheduled program site with the support of program team members.
Almost anyone can be a mentor. Interest in science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics is encouraged but mentors do not have to be experts. Mentors simply need to be caring, committed adults that have a couple of hours each week to spend with young people.
