The annual SAME Engineering & Construction Camps are recruiting volunteers to serve in critical mentor roles. Camp mentoring offers SAME Post members a valuable opportunity to support tomorrow’s leaders and STEM professionals. The success of the SAME camp program depends on the experience and talents contributed by the many volunteers across SAME’s membership. If you know a Post member that would make a good mentor, encourage them to apply. The mentor application process for the 2019 Camp season can be found at: Camp directors will review applications and follow up with individuals that match their needs. If you have questions, please contact Eddie Gonzalez, Camps Program Manager, at [email protected].

Also - Duval County Public Schools is looking to partner with an organization that is able to help our students interested in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). They are lseeking interest within your organization for any subject matter experts who would be willing to help our students in these areas.  We are currently focusing on the Challenger Center at Kirby-Smith Middle School and want to evaluate the program to see if we can expand from there.  I am available to meet with any interested parties at their convenience to explain in more detail. Contact Philip Little [email protected] 904-390-2670 for more inforation on how to participate.
