S4G Volunteer / Mentor Program

 

S4G Volunteer and Mentor program is essential to the success of the organization.  As a nonprofit charitable organization, S4G is passionate about building an inter-generational interdependent organization where collective and collaborative actions will serve the community.   Volunteers giving of their time, resources, and skills allow us to provide intensive programs and services that will inspire, connect, engage, support, enrich, expose and equip our program participants to handle the impact of STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) in building sustainable, healthy communities.  Volunteers are recruited from local high schools, two major universities and local colleges, as well as, professionals and retirees. 

Although our mentors are volunteers their role is a little different than volunteers who support group learning and activities.  In addition to some group learning activities, they also provide one on one tutoring services to a select specific child.

S4G STEM Literacy Program and Registration

  

STEMS4Girls Literacy Program is about developing partnerships with local targeted community organizations in Leon County that are interested in promoting STEM awareness, literacy and careers.  

The S4G STEM literacy program is geared towards minority students ages 5 through 12 living in underserved communities. Hands-on engagement in activities and inquiry-based exploration, is an approach proven to enhance students’ enthusiasm for math and science. In addition, to participating in STEM activities, 

students will receive instruction on the scientific method as they conduct research and oral presentations of their findings.

Research suggests STEM activities designed to stimulate a child’s curiosity will have a positive impact on students’ critical thinking skills and achievement gap in math and science.

 Students will be given a pre and post assessment to determine their STEM knowledge before and after the program. Activities provided will be free to participants.

S4G (2020) Program Facility


In 2020, S4G anticipates opening its door to a state-of-the art science and technology facility.  S4G is passionate about building an inter-generational interdependent  organization where collective and collaborative actions will serve the community. The facility will be populated by clients, students, and children who will be engaged actively by educators, tutors, and mentors.
The S4G Program Facility will be the hub where most programs and services will take place.   Using a developmentally appropriate STEM curriculum, early learners will have space where they can explore scientific practices in a natural home like learning environment; and, a cohort of young women will have excess to on-site extensive services and programs that help them succeed in graduating from an institution of higher learning with a STEM  related credential and employment. 

Our commitment is to help minority young girls and women to be inspired, connected, engaged, supported, enriched, exposed and equipped to handle the impact of STEM in building sustainable, healthy communities. 


You can help fund this S4G 2020 initiative by partnering with us or making a designated donation on-line or by mail.
