Women volunteers are urgently needed to serve as campus guides for the hundreds of attendees of the 18th annual Expanding Your Horizons (EYH) conference Friday, Nov. 17, on S&T’s campus. Please sign at eyh.mst.edu to volunteer by Wednesday, Nov. 1, or contact professional and continuing education at 341-6222.
Female staff, faculty, students and community members are encouraged to volunteer. Volunteer guides help groups of attendees navigate to workshops throughout campus. Volunteer hours are 8:15 a.m.-1:15 p.m. Lunch is provided for all volunteers who RSVP.
Two 15-minute volunteer training sessions will be available prior to the conference, at 9 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 16. Volunteers need to attend only one of the sessions. The volunteer information can also be emailed to attendees who register online.
Expanding Your Horizons introduces seventh- and eighth-grade girls to careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields. Attendees participate in two hands-on activities and workshops that demonstrate the range of STEM fields offered at Missouri S&T. They also have the opportunity to hear a keynote speaker, meet peers who share their interests, and hear from professional women in traditionally male-dominated fields.
