Do you want to make a difference and impact the community? Being a REACH mentor is a great opportunity to do so. The program runs during the academic year (Fall/Spring).
Here is the application to be a mentor: https://docs.google.com/a/umbc.edu/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLScsGKHrJB7ew0-fPJMGqYw5I_AgQakrpSjUnb6abouO2GLK4g/viewform?usp=sf_link
They're definitely still accepting new applicants. A description of the program is at the top of that page if you're looking for a way to introduce it! APPLICATIONS DUE FRIDAY, JUNE 2ND at 11:59pm.
Other ways to get involved that don't involve as much of a weekly commitment are based on joining one of the committees of organizers that basically create the curriculum. These committees might meet once every couple of weeks. They are:
STEM Committee-- Helping to plan workshops that expose students to various STEM fields. Example: Last year, they took the students to the Physics building observatory to expose them to Astronomy. Also, evaluating students' project proposals in the Spring Semester (a large portion of the program is introducing the students to research). Contact: Aliya Smith <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Gender Empowerment Committee-- Helping to plan workshops focused on issues like mental health, communication, relationships, public speaking, and more. Contact: Chimdiya Onwukwe <email@example.com>
Research Committee-- Assisting in evaluating the statistical success of a program like this by looking at last year's results, comparing them to the results of other similar programs, and drawing conclusions.
