Seeking volunteers for Star of Hope “Activities for Teens” Sessions

Initial program topics include a demonstration by a robotics competition team, current direction of space exploration and technology careers in 2025 (medical, industrial, military, etc.). Each program would be a one-evening presentation with an engaging multifaceted curriculum designed for youth. Volunteers are needed for curriculum development as well as presenters including professionals to offer testimonials and encouragement.  Alumni may volunteer for either curriculum development or curriculum presentation tasks.
