Transportation YOU

 


TY_2018

NC Triangle's Transportation YOU Program

Transportation YOU is a hands-on, interactive mentoring program that offers girls ages 10-18 an introduction into a wide variety of careers in transportation. Our program is in its 8th year and has over a dozen professional women who volunteer their time as mentors. Throughout the program year, which coincides with a traditional school year, the mentees will explore all aspects of transportation - land, air, sea, rail - with a focus on science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).

Mission

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 work to spark an interest in all modes of transportation and encourage our mentees to take courses in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.

Benefits of Participating

  • Meet new friends!
  • Learn new things
  • Network with professionals (STEM course suggestions, college application advice, letter of recommendation, etc.)
  • Exposure to scholarship opportunities
  • It's free!
