There are big benefits to volunteerism for your network, including:

  • Building relationships with local business;
  • Higher visibility of your work;
  • Word of mouth marketing;
  • Potential for future funding and/or advocates for your cause; and
  • Access to skills and resources you don’t have in your organization.

In partnership with VolunteerMatch, through the Million Girls Moonshot, STEM Next provides the platform to promote your organization and recruit volunteers to your cause. Together, let’s re-imagine who can engineer, who can build, who can make.
