SCFG engages over 100 Volunteer Mentors every semester to guide elementary and middle school girls in weekly hour-long sessions that focus on hands-on STEM learning. We welcome college and graduate students as well as professionals who can commit to 3.5 hours a week for 8-10 weeks in the Fall, Spring, and/or Summer. A background in STEM is helpful, but not necessary to apply.
Sister Circles provide teen program participants the opportunity to explore different facets of identity, health, careers, and community. Guided by collegiate and professional mentors, teens meet outside of regular club time for workshops and field trips to foster friendships across programs, and develop the necessary networks and skills to forge successful futures through college and into adulthood. There is no set weekly commitment for this position; however, all volunteers must attend a monthly meeting with the Sister Circle Program Manager for additional youth development trainings, and to build volunteer community.
Applications for Sister Circle positions are currently closed. Please check back next semester to apply for Fall 2016 openings.
Host an Intern
Our STEM Internship Program is an opportunity for 11th and 12th grade girls to explore career options and gain authentic STEM work experiences in academic and industry settings. Girls are placed in corporate and university labs throughout the Boston area, with a wide variety of fields represented. Mentors typically work with the girls for 3 hours per week, after school, for the duration of the school year. This type of long-term, consistent mentorship allows the students to delve deep into a STEM topic that excites them, experience what it’s really like to work in a laboratory setting, and build confidence and literacy in the sciences.
If you are interested in hosting an intern, please email email@example.com.
