Our Aim

       

 

 

        

 

We want to change these numbers.

At Girls SySTEM, we believe that mentorship is the most important ingredient to helping you achieve your goals. Our program aims to increase diversity in the STEM workforce by pairing students in grades 7-12 with professional mentors from a diverse range of fields. In doing so, our mentees are able to acquire first-hand knowledge of STEM early on in their academic careers, which we hope will be vital in building the confidence they need in order to break into historically (and presently!) male-dominated spheres. We also promise to provide our mentees with critical insight into various STEM careers so that they are given the ability to make more informed decisions about their futures.

What our SySTEM is saying

...I plan on bringing an open mindset to explore what possible paths there are for me to take. I think that it [Girls SySTEM] can really help us follow our dreams.

This is a great opportunity to spread the knowledge and the love to the next generation...I had such a hard time navigating through all the decisions and  choices when I was that age, if I can help guide others, I am so happy to do so.
