I had a blast working with my mentee! She was so enthusiastic, which made our time working together lots of fun! I think she got a lot out of the experience, and I am looking forward to mentoring again someday!

I have volunteered with MAGIC as a mentor for the past two years since graduating from university and it has been one of the most rewarding experiences that I have had. MAGIC aims to get more young women involved in STEM by pairing a mentee with a female role model to work on technological projects that fit her interests. The uniqueness and strength of this program is in the one-on-one relationships that exist between a mentor and mentee and the ability of the pair to create a project that highlights the menteeā€™s interests as well as her development during the program. MAGIC is special because it allows young women to develop not only technical skills but soft skills as well such as the confidence to bring their ideas to fruition. Being able to share my passion with my mentees and see their excitement and growth over the course of the year has been incredibly rewarding as well. It is the most rewarding volunteer experience that I have been a part of and I would highly recommend it to both mentees and mentors.

MAGIC aims to get more girls involved in STEM fields and as a mentor, I was able to help my mentee (a middle-schooler), channel her creativity to work on a project in her field of interest - neuroscience. Discussing physiological facts about the brain and recent medical technology developments with her was a lot of fun and it got her more interested in neuroscience. Overall, being able to have an impact on these young minds and helping them have fun while learning is a very gratifying experience.

Mentoring with MAGIC is one of the most satisfying decisions I have ever made. This is my second year mentoring with MAGIC, and I am looking forward for the third year! I have had great times with my mentees and fellow mentors, I am so amazed by how MAGIC have been able to positively impact the career decisions of these young women. I am glad to be part of this initiative!

I started with MAGIC as a mentee, and have now had the wonderful experience of being a mentor. MAGIC is such a wonderful program, and I have learned and grown from being both a mentee and a mentor.

I have been mentoring with MAGIC for two years now and have loved my experience. It is very exciting to meet young minds who are keen in the STEM fields and then see them grow and develop interests.

I started volunteering with MAGIC since 2013 as a mentor. I found it very rewarding to share my experience one-on-one with my mentee, and to learn from her. We all agree that having a role model in our life and career path is very important, and I am amazed by the positive impact MAGIC is bringing to the young women and the mentors .

Magic is a great organization. Participating in Magic as a mentor is a great opportunity to use the skills I have learned over the years as a Computer Scientist to motivate young women to consider computing related careers. I have enjoyed working with my mentee toward a common goal and seeing her express her ideas throughout the duration of the mentorship. I have also gained a lot by participating and have learned a lot about myself in the process. This program is awesome and I appreciate the chance to be a part of it.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Expand it to other schools.

MAGIC is great! As an engineering student the opportunity to use my skills to teach and motivate a young girl is extremely valuable. I was able to grow a lot from seeing my mentee learn and apply her new skills in Computer Science.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

create a stronger community among mentors.

I am a first-time volunteer for getmagic.org. The vision of this organization is to get more girls involved in STEM related fields and one of the important aspects of this vision is to make sure that strong role-models are available to the girls. Role-models who are women and are intimately involved in STEM related fields. I believe in and respect this vision and through my first year with getmagic.org as a volunteer, I have seen this visiont make a tangible and significant difference to the participating girls. The best part is seeing the girls being inspired by small technological projects and seeing them use it towards thinking about a career in a STEM related field.
