In an effort to support our S.T.E.A.M. initiates we are in need of volunteers that have been or are currently working professionals in the Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and/or Math fields.


Ideally, the volunteer would offer just 30 minutes (or more) per week of their time for:

  • Live or pre-recorded Q&A’s to discuss their background and experience working in their field
  • Short 15- or 20-minute tutorials teaching something that our youth would find fun and interesting
  • Offer insight to our team to help grow the program and youth participation
