Mentor Allentown



Mentor Allentown – a coalition approximately 30 diverse organizations formed by the Da Vinci Science Center – is one of three groups leading a national movement to change the way that students are mentored toward careers in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields. The coalition will create the local systems and structures to make it possible to provide high-impact mentoring to at least 2,000 low-income students, students of minority backgrounds, and girls in Allentown – thereby tripling the number of students mentored in STEM subjects currently in Pennsylvania’s third-largest city.

Mentor Allentown’s efforts are funded in part by one of three national grand prize grants from US2020, an affiliate of the nonprofit organization Citizen Schools, and part of US2020’s efforts to engage one million underserved students in STEM mentorship by the year 2020.

Mentor Allentown will train STEM professionals to provide at least ten hours of direct and effective contact with students. The extended relationships between mentors and students, the program’s mentorship training, and the program’s detailed evaluation practices will ensure its effectiveness and help create a national model for successful STEM mentorship in cities.
