Volunteers from high tech companies (Google, Tesla, Cisco, Visa, and others): Kids learn how to behave by imitating others. Our role models and mentors are mostly women (and a few men) from diverse ethnic backgrounds who work in the high tech industry. We help our mentors use mentoring relationships strategically to help girls to: (1) learn about the STEM careers their mentors have. Mentors give mentees a glimpse of who they might become when they are an adult in the future. Mentors help kids view themselves as someone whose potential is not set in stone; (2) learn about the skills needed to study STEM careers; (3) drop the stereotypes they have about women in STEM; (3) change the idea that STEM is boring or too hard for them.
