Apply to be a YESW mentor volunteer

You can also serve time as a YESW mentor volunteer. As a mentor, you can be involved in any/all of the following, depending on your preferences:

  • After-school classroom visits that occur for 90 minutes at various high schools around the Phoenix area
  • Informational interviews with students
  • Career fair/speed networking events (e.g., Girls Make-a-thon)
  • Discussion panel at a YESW event
  • Offer a tour of your industry/workplace
  • Help design curriculum in area of focus (e.g., cybersecurity, internet of things, programming, chemical engineering, etc.)
  • Be filmed for a brief informational video to be included in activities and online media

As a mentor, you will help support students at six partner schools, and assist the Fulton Schools in fostering awareness and appreciation of all disciplines of engineering. We are seeking passionate people who want to help guide and empower young women through engineering activities, career exploration and identity development.

If this sounds like you, please submit the YESW Volunteer Intake Form. A representative from the program will contact you shortly after receiving your information.
