Mentor Coaches and Volunteers

6th – 12th Grade

827 Twining Dr Building 4238, Barksdale AFB, LA 71110

Our mentors form a relationship with a small group of students who can rely on their mentor’s presence, dedication, and encouragement as they complete their STEM investigations. A strong mentor presence enriches the program and increases students’ interest by helping them make connections between academic concepts and the real world. Research demonstrates the benefit of having STEM professionals serving as positive role models in the lives of young adults.
