Effective STEM Mentoring Opportunities

  • Need: Students interested in STEM careers need guidance and support to take the next steps into STEM careers.
  • Objective: Develop a program to build effective mentoring relationships between City Schools students and employer partners.
  • Strategy/Activities: To Develop a pilot Mentoring program associated with the Baltimore City Schools Robotics program. Partner with local employers and Colleges/Universities to identify mentors who will provide career mentoring and guidance to the students.
