I started with MAGIC as a volunteer in Nov, 2009 and have been a mentor to a high school girl for the past 5 months. I highly value the 1 on 1 interaction as I think this format provides the greatest impact on the girls. The core management does a great job providing support for each mentor-mentee relationship - while we enjoy almost total freedom in mentoring topics, we must follow certain guidelines to ensure that the girls get a full experience out of each 6-9 month mentorship.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
- Mentee's interest in STEM related fields visibly increased over the course of mentorship.
- My personal interest in the future of women in STEM has increased.
