Girls Inc. of Greater Madison is excited to partner with STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) experts in the Madison area who will not only lead hands-on, minds-on STEM activities, but also teach our elementary-age camp participants that they too can be STEM experts! STEM programming will help your child build crucial social-emotional life skills like critical thinking and analytical skills, as well as build communication skills.

Volunteers will support program activities, learn strategies to work with girls from diverse backgrounds and assist with data collection and other logistics. Summer camp activities will focus on STEM learning so experience/background in STEM fields is preferred.

STEM Summer camp runs Monday - Thursday, July 29 - August 8; 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

Volunteers are needed 8:45 am - 12 pm or 12:30 - 4:30 pm.

Our goal is to find volunteers who can spend enough time in the camps to get to know the kids. We hope you could help out 3 - 4 times in the two week period.

If you are interested in this opportunity please click I want to Help and and let us know when you are available during these two weeks.

About Goodman Community Center

Mission Statement

Our Mission: The Goodman Community Center strengthens lives and secure futures. Our Vision: A community that’s thriving because everyone is valued and has the resources they need to be successful. Our Values: GCC is committed to creating and maintaining a community that respects and values diverse life experiences. Everyone deserves respect and acceptance without bias. We engage the perspectives and voices of our community and ensure they are reflected in our culture.

Description

The Goodman Community Center is not your average community center. As I get to talking with people about Goodman, they inevitably end up surprised. They’re surprised by how many programs and resources we offer, how beautiful our facilities are, or how many people we serve. Every year more than 30,000 people use the Center - some who come to one event, others who are very familiar faces here.

Thanks to our generous community, we just built and moved into a second beautiful facility across the street, the Brassworks building. We’re now reconfiguring and refreshing the Center’s first home on Waubesa Street, the Ironworks building. During this past ten years, we’ve nearly doubled in size.

Our staff are committed to learning and continually improving, too. That’s why each program uses a variety of tools to measure impacts for both the program overall, and for each individual participant. We use that data to constantly fine-tune what we do - and how we do it.

We’re glad Goodman is one of many organizations in the Madison area who are pouring themselves into making our community great - for us all. We hope you’ll join us. Because we know that every good thing that happens here is made possible by people like you.
