Our school's partnership with GetMagic has allowed girls with a strong interest in computer science and other STEM fields to explore those interests in a supportive yet flexible environment. Not only have the girls learned new skills and been exposed to new technologies and opportunities, but they have also developed their organizational and self advocacy skills as they work with an adult mentor outside of the normal school day.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
how the mentees become more proactive and purposeful in their explorations of technologies and programming languages.
how the mentees strengthen their communication and organizational skills by working with an adult mentor.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
passionate, knowledgeable, and caring.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
Client Served & As the Dean of Students at a school partnering with the MAGIC program, I assisted in selecting mentees, supporting them as needed throughout the school year with scheduling and logistics, and organized the final celebration of their mentorship.
