We're pivoting our on-site programs to virtual offerings and need your help!
MetIncPowerCo is a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit organization in Georgia seeking volunteers and Virtual STEM Mentors who can participate in a video series that helps historically underrepresented youth populations (minorities and females) get inspired and stay engaged with STEM-based academic courses through their high school and college years, yielding a STEM-based career. The world needs more people like you, to share your story and inspire youth interested in STEM-based fields. We aim to help students uncover a pathway to reach their goals and aspirations. Won't you help us unleash the power of YES for middle school and high school students all across Georgia? All we need is 2 minutes of your time to help change lives. Once you've made the connection- those 2 minutes have the opportunity to turn into long lasting relationships as a STEM On-Site Mentor. Through our Building E-STE(A)M For Youth Partnership, we inspire and build youth self-esteem to raise young people's aspirations to new heights and transform "I CAN'T" attitudes into " I CAN" behaviors and aptitudes in areas such as:
Math, Medicine, Materials, Mechanics
Our project-based learning activities reinforce youth enrichment by getting the whole family and community involved as we turn everyday places like The Home Depot, Hobby Lobby and AMC Movie Theatres into Public Learning Classrooms where STEM curriculum can happen outside a traditional classroom setting. To participate in the Building E-STE(A)M For Youth STEM video series we are asking that each volunteer/ mentor complete the following steps:
