Volunteer as a Guest Speaker!

One of the main reasons that students don’t consider a career in STEM is the lack of relatable role models. Learning Undefeated wants to change that by connecting teachers and classrooms with STEM professionals from all backgrounds, at all stages of their career. We are seeking young, enthusiastic, and passionate STEM professionals to talk with middle and high school students in the classroom over video chat.

It’s crucial for our students to meet role models from all backgrounds so that they can see themselves represented in STEM. We are actively seeking speakers under 30 years old who are Black, brown, bi- or multi-racial; non-native English speakers; female, transgender, or nonbinary; first in their family to go to college; LGBTQ+; and/or have nontraditional career paths.

Learning Undefeated will provide all admin support for scheduling and video conference logistics – all you do is log on and start talking! Make an impact on the innovators of tomorrow. Sign up to be a Let’s Talk STEM virtual mentor today!
