Theme: Science Education
Location(s): Burnaby/New Westminster,Vancouver
Description:We are looking to advertise the high school component of the "Diversity in Math" program widely among the schools around the lower mainland that have a higher concentration of socio-economically disadvantaged youth, new immigrants and first nations students. The work will involve
(1) getting in touch with the schools ahead of time to request a presentation session,
(2) connecting with science and mathematics teachers either in person or electronically requesting them to nominate promising students in our target demographic
(3) recruit student participants during the info sessions
(4) follow up if needed.
Associated Costs:We expect to cover mileage costs for travel to local schools and provide an additional stipend to each volunteer for their time.
