MENTORSHIP

[metaslider id=2530]

Mentoring makes a world of difference in young aspiring minds and young people thrive when they feel and know someone cares about their educational concerns, career options, and future. When faced with the choice to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM), too often our high school and college students shy away from the idea of pursuing a career in one of the science disciplines. As a result, we have too few women and students of color not entering and graduating with the STEM skill sets companies are looking for in today's global marketplace. The members of the OCUF are utilizing their talents and networks to create a STEM Mentorship Program as a tool to make a difference in the graduation rates of students in science disciplines.
