February Vacation Opportunity!

Science Club for Girls is looking for Vacation Week volunteers to lead workshops at the Yawkey Boys & Girls Club Feb 22-25.

Science Club for Girls is a campus organization that helps expose young girls to the technology fields and provides them with role models in the field. Science Club for Girls is hosting a vacation week program that lets girls grades 1-5 do activities for three days in school and go on three field trips. This is a great opportunity for the girls but cannot be accomplished without the help of volunteers.

The success of Vacation Week relies on providing volunteers during three time slots over four days: February 22-25 from 8:30am-11am, 10am-12:30pm and 12:30pm-4:30pm

Each shift has multiple mentor scientists and helpes that will work with groups of 10-15 girls.

All volutneers must fill out an application and CORI form. Boys are also welcome to volunteer! Contact Rachael Tompa ( or Rebecca Hansen ( to apply or ask any questions.
