Women are needed as volunteers to be guides for attendees of the annual Expanding Your Horizons (EYH) conference that will be held Friday, Nov. 7, on the campus of Missouri University of Science and Technology.
EYH introduces girls in 7th and 8th grade to careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields. The girls participating in the one-day conference attend hands-on workshops, meet other young women with similar interests, learn about career opportunities and interact with women working in traditionally male-dominated fields.
Female staff, faculty, students and community members are encouraged to volunteer. Guiding is easy and enjoyable and is a great way to contribute to the students’ experience on campus. The hours are from 8:15 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., and training and lunch are provided for all volunteers.
