Ms. Penny Howard, our Communities In Schools coordinator, works hard each day to help remove the non-academic barriers that prevent student success in the classroom. Of the many programs and interventions she promotes to help build up our community, Play Like a Girl is a unique mentorship program that connects girls ages 10-13 with caring, trusted, consistent women mentors to advance their pursuit of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) career interests. Centered around the foundational experience of group networking, mentors give their mentees the confidence, motivation, and support to succeed in school and in life.
If you are interested in getting your student involved as a mentee, or getting involved as a mentor, please click the link below for more information. Deadline for applications to this program are this Wednesday, October 28th.
