About

Are you looking for an opportunity to encourage girls' interest in computer science, engineering and tinkering/Making on a regular basis? If not, do you know someone who might?

Volunteer to be a Techbridge Girls STEM/Making Mentor!

We are seeking mentors to support teams of girls at ACE and Global Connections High Schools in SeaTac, WA as they design, make and prepare to showcase their projects at science fairs and Family Nights. You may have expertise in computer science, engineering, Making, or just a desire to help girls translate their visions into reality!

This is our first ever high school program in Greater Seattle. Our high school programs have been very successful in Oakland, largely thanks to the dedicated mentors there. For more information on Techbridge's award-winning after-school programs in underserved communities, visit our website, techbridgegirls.org, including the blog post describing our high school girls at the Bay Area Maker Faire.

Mentors will commit to visiting the Techbridge high school program every 2 weeks starting in October 2016 and ending with our Family Night in March/April 2017. Each Mentor will be matched with one small group of high school girls. Mentors help girls troubleshoot problems with their projects; build girls' skills and confidence; and form relationships that change girls' lives.

The weekly meeting time for our Techbridge program is:

Tuesdays from 2:30-4:45 pm

4424 S 188th St.

SeaTac, WA 98188

Thank you for being a role model for Techbridge girls. Because of the dedication of role models like you, Techbridge girls can imagine changing the world through science, technology and engineering.
