Multiple volunteer opportunities have emerged with Project Exploration (PE) as we enter our 23rd year of creating transformative learning experiences for youth underrepresented in STEM, and we hope you will join us to support Chicago students and families.
In particular, we seek real-world professionals working in science, technology, engineering, and math fields to come to our program spaces to introduce job opportunities in your field to students who may not otherwise meet and be able to envision their own futures as doctors and nurses, computer programmers and engineers, biologists and actuaries. Additionally, this represents an opportunity for you or your group to collaborate with PE’s team to design and lead a fun, hands-on STEM activity with PE students and their families.
While this opportunity will be available year-round, we are particularly excited for STEM professionals to join us between now and #GivingTuesday, November 29, 2022, for PE’s #BeLike Campaign. When you share your story with our young people, you offer an incredible opportunity for them to develop their STEM identities, visualize their future, and meet the role models who they can #BeLike! The student reactions and stories that emerge from these visits will help us showcase the power of STEM, and fuel momentum to help us reach of goal of raising $23,000 on Giving Tuesday to support year-round visits and family nights.
Multiple choices of days and times are available. Complete the form to start planning your visit with our students:
