Our mission

How to be involved

This includes taking our survey to gain a better understanding of what our community wants from role models.

Browsing through a spreadsheet of San Diego-based STEM role model opportunities and how to volunteer

Or joining FabFems, a national directory of role models serving as virtual role models and reaching communities across the US.

Professional development opportunities for role models including science communication, virtual mentorship training, improving how you speak with teens, and others

Partner organizations that serve as our pilot programs in the initiative

Resources from local organizations, like videos of STEM mentors

This website can be used by STEM professionals seeking volunteer opportunities or educators and parents looking to find programs to enrich their students' lives.
