Virtual Mentorship Opportunity: High Schoolers & CEE at Georgia Tech

The Illinois Science and Technology Coalition (ISTC) is looking for volunteers with diverse backgrounds and areas of expertise to participate in virtual skills-based mentoring of Illinois high school students through its Mentor Matching Engine (MME) platform.

For only one hour per week, mentors can increase exposure to career pathways for students who have been historically excluded from these fields by guiding them through research projects of their choosing in STEM, humanities, sociology, social justice, and more.

If you are interested in supporting a student’s growth in problem-solving, research, leadership, and communication by joining ISTC’s trusted cohort of all-virtual mentors, sign up here to be contacted with the next steps.

Looking for Judges for Middle School Competition

The  Team Engineering Challenge contest at SkillsUSA Nationals will be taking place in Atlanta. We are looking for a judge for late morning and afternoon of Thursday, June 23rd as a judging window. Any Georgia Tech Engineering Student can reach out if they would like to become a judge.

The contact has groups of three middle school students presented with a challenge, and then they have to “purchase” materials that they want to use to come up with a solution.

We already have a few industry judges, but are hoping to find one or two more!!

What you will do as a judge!

The judges will be watching the students test what they build, and then interviewing the students to ask a bit about the engineering process that they went through, what went well, what they struggled with, and things like that. Someone that is going to be able to differentiate between the various teams for the middle schoolers.

Peer Coaching Program – Now Accepting Applications!

The Peer Coaching Program is a program developed by the Counseling Center to offer an innovative way for Tech students to access a unique type of support to facilitate academic and personal success.  The PCP trains Tech students to provide one-on-one support and education to their GT peers and offers Peer Coaches ongoing supervision in the provision of these services.  Students serving as Peer Coaches are trained to assist consultees in identifying and accomplishing specific academic, social or other personal goals related to concerns commonly faced in college.

I am pleased to announce that we are now accepting applications from students who wish to be trained as a Peer Coach in Fall 2022. In the past, one of the best ways for us to receive quality applicants is for faculty, staff, and campus partners to “nominate” or encourage students that may be a strong candidate to apply to the program. If you are familiar with any students whom you feel would be a good fit for the program and are ready to make a impact on the lives of their peers, I strongly encourage you to encourage them to apply for the program! Any questions can sent to me at

Application instructions, and more information about the program and training, can be found at the link below. Applicants must submit an application with two letters of recommendation no later than April 22nd.

Thank you for your work and help in supporting the mental health needs of our students!
