Volunteers and Mentors Needed

Mentoring is about advising, advocating, teaching, coaching, and providing a guidance system.  The volunteer mentor's job is to support the student team as they explore engineering-related questions by facilitating discussions, helping students refine their ideas, finding and accessing resources, and providing feedback as the team works on their city.  By tying in real-life engineering experiences, the mentor can help the students connect the academic to the real- world of engineering. Ideally, a mentor is available to work with the educator and students for one to two hours each week from September to January. These meetings can be hosted in a variety of ways -- in-person, via Skype, or over the phone.  In a recent evaluation, mentors told us they volunteered to help increase students interest in STEM and because they were asked. Consider yourself asked! To learn more about the Future City Competition or to register to be a volunteer mentor please visit: www.futurecity.org
