Citing President Obama’s recognition of the importance of mentorship in the nation’s quest to produce top students in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) fields, the Corporation for National and Community Service has released a toolkit detailing strategies to become an effective organizer of STEM mentorship within the community.
The toolkit lays out a step-by-step guide to getting started, including identifying local partners, building a team, and setting goals. The toolkit provides thorough guidance for each step, including online resources for finding STEM mentoring organizations, strategies for building mentorship teams and conducting meetings, worksheets to track progress of set goals, and guides describing how to be a good STEM mentor. Success stories will be highlighted throughout the year at serve.gov.
