Junior Mentoring is a leadership program where upper-middle and high school girls serve as co-teachers and mentors in K-8th grade science clubs in Boston, Brookline, Newton, Somerville, Cambridge, and Lawrence. Junior Mentors also participate in “Sister Circles” program to build relationships and learn and practice teamwork, communication skills, and other critical 21st century skills.
Junior Mentoring is open to all girls in grades 9-12, and girls in grade 8 who have previously been Science Club for Girls participants, or have prior experience as a peer leader. Junior Mentors receive a stipend or community service hours for their participation.
Junior Mentors looking for an additional leadership opportunity who have mentored for at least 2 years are eligible to apply for a Lead Junior Mentor position. Lead Junior Mentors work closely with program staff to plan and facilitate additional Junior Mentor trainings, and serve as a peer mentor to other JMs at their site.
