We offer UMD students many ways to make a difference in their community. Our focus is to inspire a love of STEM in K-12 students and beyond.

Be a part of the community by mentoring the scientists and engineers of the future.

We have opportunities galore for students that would like to make a difference in our community.

What do volunteers do?

You may volunteer for as little as a one hour session or as often as once a week. Our current focus is academic support of local studetns. 

We want to know what works best for you so we can design an experience that helps you build your resume and ensures your time is well spent.
