Lead Technovation’s STEM programs in your community
As technology changes our world, who is changing technology?
Put today’s tech in the hands of girls, children, and their families and ask them what problems they want to solve. Get everyone involved in the conversation with the tools that are shaping our shared future.
Run one (or both!) of our Technovation programs as a Community Partner.
Community partners commit to dedicating 20-60 hours over a 5-6 month program season.
Lead Technovation Families
Run a chapter
Chapters run at multiple sites, each of which works with 20 families. This is a great opportunity if your organization works with many locations and has experience leading youth and family programs and STEM programs (or wants to start offering them). Recommended for regional nonprofits or school districts.
"My favorite moments were after the sessions when students ran up to tell me how much they love science and how they know how computers work and what AI is all about. I also loved watching the evolution of adults - teachers, parents, community volunteers - from the introduction meeting to the last challenge."
-Trisha C., Technovation Families Mentor, South Africa
Lead Technovation Girls
Be a regional ambassador
Ready to lead the program with a large region like a city or country? Does your organization serve multiple sites, cities, or schools. Recruit girls and mentors, organize regional meetings and events, and commit to spending 10-20 hours a week for 6 months.
You don’t need to work in technology to be a Regional Ambassador. We provide training and support.
There are other ways to support Technovation
If you aren’t ready to lead our programs in your community, or don’t have 20+ hours to volunteer, we still want to work with you! There are plenty of ways you can support and encourage local students and families as they learn, play, and build.
Volunteer to mentor through your employer
Work with a colleague to guide girls as they use technology to solve problems like bullying, elder neglect, and climate change.
Judge project submissions
Evaluate the projects girls and families in your community are building to solve big problems.
"Technovation not only changed my girls' lives, but it has changed mine as well, finally helping me to realize how I can get into a fulfilling career."
-Chip M., Technovation Girls Mentor, Moldova
"The great thing is that we support these girls to develop themselves by learning competence and abilities for success. After all, life is a constant learning path. It is a pleasure to be part of Technovation and sharing my bit to make a better world."
-Aintzane, Technovation Girls Mentor, Spain
"I am extremely proud not just for my finalist family but also for all our other participating families. They've shown me that as an educator, I will never stop learning from my students no matter what age they might be. "
-Sheila B., Technovation Families Mentor, Los Angeles
"I'm most proud about inspiring kids. I'm an engineer, I have a stressful job and I have three children, so I don't have much free time, but despite this I have been running the program because you give back a lot. And this is a way to give back, we are all a chain and life goes on."
-Laura M., Technovation Families Mentor, Spain
