Time Zone: 
Pacific

Meet the National Girls Collaborative Youth Advisory Board (YAB) Members. This webinar offers a chance to hear from YAB members, learn about their activities with NGCP, and ask the YAB members questions about their experiences and involvement.  

Incorporating youth voice into programming and organizations is a research-based practice that impacts youth in multiple positive ways. Youth voice is the means through which young people become actors in their own learning, participate in the decisions that affect them, and become active citizens. (Zeldin, Gurtner, & Chapa, 2018)   

NGCP’s YAB helps to review and provide feedback on current National Girls Collaborative Project (NGCP) initiatives and assist in informing the future direction of the NGCP.

Meet the YAB speakers joining the webinar:

Christine A

Hi! My name is Christine A., and I’m a high school senior from Georgia. As a part of my school’s Girls Who Code Club and as a creative director for Reinvented Magazine, I love spreading STEM to other girls. In the future, I hope to pursue a career in computer science or engineering! 

Divya S 

Hi! I'm Divya, a senior in high school from Northern VA. I am an advocate for gender equality in STEM, and work with local and national programs to bring awareness, create resources, and develop programs. To address this issue and promote interest, I started a club which works with elementary school kids, conducts workshops, and is collaborating with companies such as Northrop Grumman on projects to create more awareness. Additionally, the club has advocated for bills supporting this cause by informing senators and policy makers at Capitol Hill. I am also interested in the intersection between STEM, specifically computer science, and business, to create solutions for social issues. 

Lindsey H. 

 

I’m Lindsey H. from Wisconsin. I’ve always liked STEM, specifically engineering. Recently, I’ve been really interested in quantum physics and nanotechnology, and I hope to pursue these interests in college and as a career. I absolutely love encouraging girls in STEM on a larger scale, but I love working locally like at my school’s STEM girls club! 

Megan M.

I'm Megan M. from Northern Virginia. I am mainly interested in computer science and hope to pursue this passion in college. Since I was little, I have always been involved with STEM in school and through extracurricular activities. My goal is to empower young women to explore STEM in a less daunting way by providing valuable learning opportunities!
