 WTS NC Triangle Chapter  - Introduction Message

 

Transportation YOU is hands-on, interactive mentoring program that offers girls ages 13-18 an introduction into a wide variety of careers in transportation. Our chapter's program is in its 6thyear and has over a dozen professional women who volunteer their time as mentors. These women not only dedicate their time to hold successful events, but they show the mentees all the possibilities in transportation simply by being a role model.

Transportation YOU's mission is to change the face of the transportation industry by growing the involvement and interest of girls and young women in STEM studies. We provide the mentees with an environment to harvest their critical thinking skills, grow their innovations, and share their creativity. We aim to show the mentees that success is possible regardless of any limitations that challenge them.

Throughout the year, we invite local professionals to share stories about their careers and lead a hands-on activity. In addition to learning about transportation, the mentees learn team work, apply critical thinking skills, and practice public speaking.

There are several ways to become involved or give back to the future of transportation.

  1. Become a mentor: We are always looking for motivated individuals to be a role model to our mentees.
  2. Speak at one of our events: Do you have an interesting career or a unique story about how you arrived at your current position? Share your stories and speak at an event!
  3. Donate at the annual Go Gala: The donations raised at the chapter's Annual Go Gala go into the chapter's Foundation Fund, which is used for scholarships and Transportation YOU events.

Finally, get a chance to meet our Transportation YOU group while you race against them in next month's Pinewood Derby! If you have any questions or would like to learn more, please contact me.
