SMART Partners in STEM

So you’re thinking of becoming a SMART Partner?

As a SMART (Science, Math & Relevant Technology) Partner, you will have the opportunity to work directly with girls in our Operation SMART®  program. You will be able to use your skills in a science, math, engineering or technology field to help girls discover the scientist within. And, of course, you get to see a girl’s eyes light up when she carries out an experiment, solves a problem, makes a discovery, or learns that just like you, she can become a leader in STEM!

What can you do as a SMART Partner?

  • You can be trained on how to inspire and interact with a group of girls through Operation SMART activities over an 8-week term as a Girls Guide.
  • You can visit a Girls Group that is doing Operation SMART to share your experience working as a woman in a STEM field and serve as a professional role model to them.
  • You and a group of women at your workplace can volunteer together through our Associates Mentoring Program to connect deeply with a group of girls, share your experiences, mentor them, and collaborate on a community service project.
  • You can serve on our STEM Council to help advise Girls Inc. of NW Oregon on how to improve our STEM programming.
