Group Leader Information

Encourage Girls to Enter STEM Careers!

  • What is EYH?
    EYH is an international one day conference that is designed to increase girls’ interest in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics), and to provide them with information on math and science related careers.
  • What major should I have to volunteer?
    Undergraduate and graduate students in any discipline are welcome to volunteer as an EYH Group Leader. EYH is great experience for “helping” majors like education, social work, and human science as well as those students interested in STEM careers. 
  • What role do Group Leaders play?
    Group Leaders supervise and escort the girls to the assigned workshops at EYH. Group Leaders encourage girls to participate in the hands-on STEM workshops and share with the girls what it is like being an MTSU college student. Group Leaders assist the workshop leaders if needed, eat lunch with the girls and help with dismissal on EYH day.
