Community Engagement hosted another successful training at Simmons

Forty-five new Mentor Scientists and Junior Mentors gathered at Simmons College for the Science Club for Girls (SCFG) annual spring volunteer training, Jan. 28.

SCFG’s volunteers are primarily women working and studying in the STEM fields, with a passion for making the world of science accessible and exciting for the next generation of women.

“We are honored to support SCFG,” says Director of Community Engagement Diane Hammer, “an organization making sure the next generation of women have the skills and tools to explore the mysteries of our world.”

The Cambridge-based nonprofit strives to foster STEM literacy and confidence in girls, grades K-12, by providing hands-on, experiential, free after-school programs in underrepresented communities.
