Professional Mentors

 

S4G Mentoring program is essential to the success of the organization. As a 501(c)(3) public charitable organization, S4G is passionate about building a multi-generational interdependent organization where collective and collaborative actions will serve the community. 


We offer various levels of mentoring opportunities: retirees and professional as mentors, ,college students as mentors, and  youth as mentors.


Youth as mentors are high school students trained to help young children in a variety of settings with hands-on-activities under the supervision of a college student  and/or an adult.  Research indicates that youth who serve as mentors gain positive rewards such as improved health and self esteem, sense of accomplishment, public recognition, and inclusion in a volunteer community.  Our youth mentors volunteer 2 - 10 hours per month some serving as one-to-one mentors to school age children.

College students as mentors are trained by professional educators or they enter the organization with previous experience as a mentor to youth or children usually through an after school program or a camp.  In this situation, the youth mentor becomes the mentee of a college student.  Additional benefits from being a mentor include greater school connectedness, improved academic performance, and reductions in substance abuse, and other high-risk behaviors.  College students as mentors volunteer 3 - 15 hours per month serving as role models, advocates, trainers, and civic leaders to children, youth and the community.

Professionals as mentors are invited to serve on one of S4G six committees, sponsor or co-sponsor an event,  be a panelist, speakers, or lead/facilitate a workshops.   We believe that through the sharing of our resources, talents, and time we can impact the retention and graduation rate of minority females  entering a STEM field of studies, as well as, improve the STEM literacy gap in the lives of children whose access to a high quality STEM education and/or resources is limited. 

Volunteers giving of their time, resources, and skills are recruited from local high schools, two major universities and local colleges, as well as, professionals and retirees.

Valencia Lawrence and Chloe Henderson recognition award for one year of volunteer service with S4G

  

"My name is Valencia Lawrence, a third-year full-time student at Florida A&M University and S4G web page designer. I am pursuing my undergraduate degree with a major in Computer Information Systems and anticipate graduation in Spring 2020, with a certificate in cyber security and a minor in business. I have been apart of STEMS4Girls since December 2017, and I have watched it grow from a prodigious vision into a remarkable reality. I joined STEMS4Girls because I relate to its mission, I could see the lack of minorities, especially women in STEM fields. By being a part of this organization, I can help bridge that gap and bring STEM to underserved and overlooked communities. It also allows me to use and develop my interests and talents to help my community and strengthen our impact. I enjoy the feeling that the work that I do helps change the lives of others."


Chloe Henderson a 4th year FAMU Doctor of Pharmacy candidate whose career goal is to become an entrepreneur by opening her own non-profit pharmacy.  She has been a reliable member of our team for over a year and has made significant decision making contributions to our organization.   In addition to being a full time student Chloe volunteers her services in many areas of need at STEMS4Girls.
