STEM Outreach & Mentoring Program

The overarching goal of this program is to bridge the secondary school to college continuum for STEM and Computer Science in Africa and to ultimately increase the pipeline of African girls entering STEM careers. The STEM Chapter project recruits, trains, equips and facilitates a chapter consisting of 9 – 12 African University students to provide STEM tutoring, computer science training and mentoring to 3 – 5 public secondary schools in their communities. WAAW currently operates 19 STEM chapters in 11 African countries, with over 200 fellows. The chapters impact over 10,000 youth each year.
