The Young 100 is the Stone Mountain-Lithonia Chapter's signature girls STEM mentoring program.
Various research studies indicate African American women are drastically underrepresented in STEM careers in the United States. Our mission with the Young 100 is to help expose young girls (rising 9th graders through HS Seniors) to STEM activities and career professionals and help steer them toward those careers.
*Spread the word about girls’ and women’s achievements in math and science.
*Teach students about stereotype threat and promote a growth-mindset environment.
*Encourage children to develop their spatial skills
*Help girls recognize their career-relevant skills.
The girls are asked to commit to 4 years of courses and field trips with the expectation of graduating high school and moving on to college or vocational school.
If you have a female, African American student (9th grade through HS Senior only) who is interested in applying to this program, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
