My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Getmagic Corporation, San Jose, CA, USA
I joined getMagic as a mentor in 2010 and have been mentoring two girls so far. I work with the girls on STEM projects, discuss college choices and explore future career paths in STEM.
During my mentoring, I got fantastic support from the GetMagic management board, as well as from other mentors. We have monthly meetings with other GetMagic mentors, as well as regular 1:1 meetings with the management board. The feedback I get from these meetings helps me very much in my work with the girls. It is great to see how much everyone from GetMagic is involved in supporting young girls interested in STEM.
