STEM Mentoring

STEM mentors are available to be matched with up to two interested students for an hour of weekly academic support in a given subject. Mentors and students have the flexibility to schedule their weekly meeting times themselves.  Depending on the availability of the Mentor, students may be able to meet more than once per week.
