Have you been looking for a way to make a big difference in a small amount of time? Consider volunteering with Science is Elementary (SiE) at Roses in Concrete.
Science is Elementary seeks to effect systemic change in elementary science education and wants all children realize science is awesome and use its principles to better their lives. Roses in Concrete is an amazing community school that serves children in East Oakland. They provide social services to families and a loving, arts-rich experience for students.
SiE and Roses in Concrete are partnering to provide engaging, hands-on science lessons this spring. In order for students to have individualized attention and establish mentor relationships we need STEM professionals to volunteer with us. We are especially hoping for people of color to volunteer so that students experience role models reflecting the community, and all are welcome. It's a minimal time commitment - 2 hours a month from Feb-May 2018. You'll learn, you'll experience joy, and you'll make a difference in the lives of some amazing students.
