Ranging from several hours a week to a one time engagement, volunteers dedicate as much or as little time as they have available. Volunteers will spend their time doing job show-and-tells, connecting academic subjects to the real world, and building robots with LEGOs!!
PLEASE NOTE: You do not have to work in a STEM field to volunteer with Latino STEM Alliance!!
Another important role individuals play is as donors. We need your help! The people that volunteer with us understand its very hard to climb the socioeconomic ladder and that organizations like Latino STEM Alliance are a necessary leg-up for many underserved youth. Although LSA’s model is very cost-effective, it still requires significant financial investments to pay for qualified instructors, materials for hands-on activities, and even to have interns engaging students via social media to create excitement around STEM careers.
