Multiply Your Options (MYO) Volunteer (run by VII)

MYO is one of several programs utilized at the University of Connecticut to combat the lack of exposure to professional female role models in the areas of science, mathematics, engineering and technology. Multiply Your Options (MYO) is a one-day conference for middle school girls designed to expose them to female role models in science, mathematics, engineering and technology. The MYO concept can be used for multiple constituencies in order to address the lack of role models, gross under-representation and lack of diversity in certain career clusters (such as engineering with a female representation of only 8%).

Engineering Your Future (EYF) Volunteer (run by VII)

Engineering Your Future (EYF) is a one-day conference designed for 8th-grade boys from underrepresented backgrounds. Our purpose in hosting this conference is to introduce them to role models that look like them in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). Our goal is to host students from populations that are underrepresented in engineering in hopes of igniting a flame to inspire these students to consider STEM fields and their overall potential.

Tutor for The Education Project

Due to COVID-19, students and teachers have transitioned to online learning, which may be challenging for many students— particularly those with limited access to additional resources. To address this need, we, in partnership with Humanity First USA, have launched The Education Project as a program to connect volunteer college students and professionals as tutors and mentors for elementary, middle, and high school students. Through volunteer-driven, virtual, 1-on-1 tutoring, we can help ease the academic burden created by the COVID-19 pandemic. Ever since the summer, we have now served over 400 students and are in the process of forming 5-6 school partnerships in areas with demonstrated need. Our project is launched under Humanity First USA, a registered 501(c)3 non-profit humanitarian organization.

This project is currently ongoing and our goal is to continue to serve communities with greater educational needs.
