Looking for a Volunteer Opportunity?

Saturday, April 21 is National Day of Service – STEM Works presented by Thursday Network, the Young Professionals Auxiliary of the Greater Washington Urban League.

This collective community service shows the nation that young professionals DO give back to their communities. This year’s theme is “STEM Works.” The goal is to encourage bright young students (i.e. you), especially from underrepresented groups, to study in Science, Technology, Engineering or Mathematics (STEM) fields. STEM jobs are usually in high demand – you may find them worth looking into as you enter college.

** This is great volunteer experience that will add value to your resume as well as expose you to STEM disciplines. It’s a win-win. **

Service is from 10 am – 2 pm at The Greater Washington Urban League Headquarters located at 2901 14th Street, NW, Washington, DC 20009.
