“Mentees on the Move” is a STEM-themed mentoring program made possible through the Palm Beach County STEM Education Council and the School District of Palm Beach County. Through a collaboration with the Cox Science Center and Aquarium and the support of generous local partners, this unique program supports the STEM career pipeline, inspires students to embrace STEM principles, and allows STEM professionals to positively influence our community.
Preventing students from dropping out of the STEM talent pipeline is essential to meeting current and future U.S. job demands. Nearly 30 percent of students say they would like to pursue STEM careers, and this number is increasing - thanks to our amazing mentors. We are always looking for qualified volunteers for "Mentees on the Move" - apply to become a mentor today!
We have volunteer opportunities for adults 18 years and older.
Mentors must complete an interview and a Level 2 FBI background check.
The mentor will be supervised, trained, and supported in order to provide an optimal mentoring experience for the child.
