Rosie Riveters, a new STEM non-profit in Arlington, is currently seeking mentors with active careers in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) to speak with girls from the ages of 4-14 about their journey into their chosen profession as well as their day-to-day experiences.
A little bit about us: Rosie Riveters' mission is to provide a fun space for girls ages 4-14 to imagine, create, and play while developing their skills in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Our organization is built on the premise that innovation is cultivated where experimentation is encouraged; that failure is not in conflict with success, but a necessary and crucial part of it. Through hands-on STEM projects our hope is to not only encourage girls to be strong, confident, and competent in STEM, but to keep them engaged through mentorship programs and network building.
Methods of Mentoring
- Face-to Face (in person or via video conference)- Join us at the end of a project session to discuss your position and experiences.
- Pre-Record- Participate in a pre-recorded interview to discuss your position and experiences.
We ask mentors to speak for 15 minutes (usually around 5:30pm), provide students with their business cards and encourage participants to follow up with them after the session with their questions. The intention is to teach participants the skills of networking, relationships and the importance of follow up.*
Join us on our journey to inspire girls with the “confidence to try”. Apply below.
* Please Note: All mentor positions require a set of skills, an application and an interview. All mentors must consent to a background check.Become a volunteer
