What makes SCFG a successful program? First and foremost, the answer is our dedicated volunteers. Science club participants look up to Volunteer Mentor Scientists and Junior Mentors as role models and as friends. These women give their enthusiasm, their personality, and their unique background in science to SCFG.
This year in Lawrence, we are lucky to have a new group of volunteer Junior Mentors from local high schools. High school teachers from Andover and Lawrence were excited to learn about volunteer opportunities with SCFG, and they have recruited excellent students from AP chemistry and biology to help lead clubs.
Our new Junior Mentors have exceeded expectations all around. They have stepped up by developing strong relationships with club participants, leading hands-on activities, and bringing their own outside knowledge into the curriculum. These Junior Mentors are already growing as leaders and developing valuable communication skills that will help them in college and future careers. SCFG is excited to continue working with this awesome group of Junior Mentors, and to expand our group of girls for the spring semester!
Thank you Sarita, Kathryn, Sammie, Elissa, and Chantel
