About

Empower girls to pursue careers in a STEM-related field and break the cycle of poverty in their family. We especially want to reach out to students from low-income households who can attend sessions on a scholarship.

TechGYRLS is an afterschool program encouraging girls in grades 3-8 to explore science, technology, engineering and math through fun, hands-on activities. We currently operate in Oshkosh, Menasha, Kewaunee, Sturgeon Bay and the Green Bay area, and need volunteers in each of these cities!

Volunteers will teach one-hour sessions once a week for eight weeks at a school that fits with their availability. Curriculum is already designed and training and all materials are provided. This is a great opportunity for any college students pursuing a degree in education, psychology or youth development, as well as anyone looking to be a positive role model for young girls.

Please see attached flyer and visit www.ywcagreenbay.org/techgyrls for more info. Contact program manager Rachael Paulsen to fill out a volunteer application and background check release form: rpaulsen@ywcagreenbay.org or (920) 432-5581 ext. 130.
